In science:

If d = 2m and either G = Spd (q) with q even or G = SUd(q), and P is the stabilizer of a maximal total ly isotropic subspace with Q the unipotent radical of P and xG ∩P ⊆ Q, then x is a long root element.
Products of conjugacy classes in finite and algebraic simple groups
Thus, if G = SUd (q), it suffices to show the claim for d = 5, 6 and this is a straightforward computation.
Products of conjugacy classes in finite and algebraic simple groups
If G = SUd(q), we can identify Q with Hermitian m × m matrices and every element of Q is conjugate to a diagonal element.
Products of conjugacy classes in finite and algebraic simple groups
First exclude the case that G = Spd(q), d ≥ 4, with q even or G = SUd (q) with d ≥ 4 even.
