Let . Assuming that is not a root of unity, we compute the Picard group of the algebra , describe its action on the space of isomorphism classes of rank 1 projective modules and classify the algebras Morita equivalent to . Our computations are based on a ‘quantum’ version of the Calogero–Moser correspondence relating projective -modules to irreducible representations of the double affine Hecke algebras at . We show that, under this correspondence, the action of on agrees with the action of on constructed by Cherednik [C1], [C2]. We compare our results with the smooth and analytic cases. In particular, when , we find that , where is the bounded derived category of coherent sheaves on the elliptic curve .
