The maximal lengths of elements in each of the conjugacy classes of Coxeter groups of types $B_n$, $D_n$ and $E_6$ are determined. Additionally, representative elements are given that attain these maximal lengths.
  • The results below are discovered through our pilot algorithms. Let us know how we are doing!
