We study the SU(3) AVE graphs, which appear in the classification of modular in variant partition functions from numerous viewpoints, including determination of their Boltzmann weights, representations of Hecke algebras, a new notion of A2 planar algebras and their modules, various Hilbert series of dimensions and spectral measures, and the K-theory of associated Cuntz-Krieger algebras. We compute the K-theory of the of the Cuntz-Krieger algebras associated to the SU(3) AVE graphs. We compute the numerical values of the Ocneanu cells, and consequently representations of the Hecke algebra, for the AVE graphs. Some such representations have appeared in the literature and we compare our results. We use these cells to define an SU(3) analogue of the Goodman-de la Harpe-Jones construction of a subfactor, where we embed the j42-Temperley-Lieb algebra in an AF path-algebra of the SU(3) AVE graphs. Using this construction, we realize all SU(3) modular invariants by subfactors previously announced by Ocneanu. We give a diagrammatic representation of the i42-Temperley-Lieb algebra, and show that it is isomorphic to Wenzl's representation of a Hecke algebra. Generalizing Jones's notion of a planar algebra, we construct an 42-planar algebra which captures the structure contained in the SU(3) AVE subfactors. We show that the subfactor for an AVE graph with a flat connection has a description as a flat >12-planar algebra. We introduce the notion of modules over an 42-planar algebra, and describe certain irreducible Hilbert A2- Temperley-Lieb-modules. A partial decomposition of the ,42-planar algebras for the AVE graphs is achieved. We compare various Hilbert series of dimensions associated to ADE models for SU(2), and the Hilbert series of certain Calabi-Yau algebras of dimension 3. We also consider spectral measures for the ADE graphs and generalize to SU(3), and in particular obtain spectral measures for the infinite SU(3) graphs.
