# ## About: Length of a Weyl group elementGotoSpongeNotDistinctPermalink

An Entity of Type : yago:WikicatLieGroups, within Data Space : dbpedia.org associated with source document(s)  In mathematics, the length of an element w in a Weyl group W, denoted by l(w), is the smallest number k so that w is a product of k reflections by simple roots. (So, the notion depends on the choice of a positive Weyl chamber.) In particular, a simple reflection has length one. The function l is then an integer-valued function of W; it is a length function of W. It follows immediately from the definition that l(w−1) = l(w) and that l(ww'−1) ≤ l(w) + l(w' ).(See also: Longest element of a Coxeter group)
