## Abstract

Bukh and Zhou conjectured that the expectation of the length of the longest common subsequence of two i.i.d random permutations of size n is greater than √ n . We prove in this paper that there exists a universal constant n 1 such that their conjecture is satisfied for any pair of i.i.d random permutations of size greater than n 1 with distribution invariant under conjugation. More generally, in the case where the laws of the two permutations are not necessarily the same, we give a lower bound for the expectation. In particular, we prove that if one of the permutations is invariant under conjugation and with a good control of the expectation of the number of its cycles, the limiting fluctuations of the length of the longest common subsequence are of Tracy-Widom type. This result holds independently of the law of the second permutation.
