Weyl groups are ubiquitous, and efficient algorithms for them -- especially for the exceptional algebras -- are clearly desirable. In this paper we provide several of these, addressing practical concerns arising naturally for instance in computational aspects of the study of affine algebras or Wess-Zumino-Witten conformal field theories. We also discuss the efficiency and numerical accuracy of these algorithms.

Spectral Measures for G2
Spectral measures provide invariants for braided subfactors via fusion modules. In this paper we study joint spectral measures associated to the rank two Lie group G2, including the McKay graphs for

Charges of twisted branes: the exceptional cases
The charges of the twisted D-branes for the two exceptional cases (SO(8) with the triality automorphism and E6 with charge conjugation) are determined. To this end the corresponding NIM-reps are

TLDR
Affine.m is a program for computations in representation theory of finite-dimensional and affine Lie algebras and its implemented algorithms are based on the properties of weights and Weyl symmetry.
Charges of Exceptionally Twisted Branes
The charges of the exceptionally twisted (D4 with triality and E6 with charge conjugation) D-branes of WZW models are determined from the microscopic/CFT point of view. The branes are labeled by
Boundary conformal field theory and fusion ring representations

Loop operators and the Kondo problem
We analyse the renormalisation group flow for D-branes in WZW models from the point of view of the boundary states. To this end we consider loop operators that perturb the boundary states away from
