    Abstract

    Let W be a finite Coxeter group and X a subset of W. The length polynomial LW,X(t) is defined by LW,X(t) = P x∈X t `(x) , where ` is the length function on W. In this article we derive expressions for the length polynomial where X is any conjugacy class of involutions, or the set of all involutions, in any finite Coxeter group W. In particular, these results correct errors in [6] for the involution length polynomials of Coxeter groups of type Bn and Dn. Moreover, we give a counterexample to a unimodality conjecture stated in [6].
