We derive some new signed Mahonian polynomials over the complex reflection group G(r, 1 , n) = Cr≀ Sn, where the “sign” is taken to be any of the 2r 1-dim characters and the “Mahonian” statistics are the lmaj defined by Bagno and the sor defined by Eu et al. Various new signed Mahonian polynomials over Coxeter groups of types Bn and Dn are obtained as well. We also investigate the signed counting polynomials on G(r, 1, n) for those statistics with the distribution [r] q[2 r] q⋯ [nr] q.
