Exceptional complex Lie groups have become increasingly important in various fields of mathematics and physics. As a result, there has been interest in expanding the representation theory of finite groups to include embeddings into the exceptional Lie groups. Cohen, Griess, Lisser, Ryba, Serre and Wales have pioneered this area, classifying the finite simple and quasisimple subgroups that embed in the exceptional complex Lie groups.
This work contains the first major results concerning conjugacy classes of embeddings of finite subgroups of an exceptional complex Lie group in which there are large numbers of classes. The approach developed in this work is character theoretic, taking advantage of the classical subgroups of $E_8 (\mathbb C)$. The machinery used is relatively elementary and has been used by the author and others to solve other conjugacy problems. The results presented here are very explicit. Each known conjugacy class is listed by its fusion pattern with an explicit character afforded by an embedding in that class.

The Heavens and the Earth is a groundbreaking new textbook designed for the undergraduate, non-science major. Thoroughly Biblical in approach and content, it is the only college-level textbook in Earth and space sciences that advocates Biblical, young-Earth creationism while also fairly and respectfully presenting naturalistic views of history.

FIVE SOULS, huddled against the aching cold of the Alaskan wilderness. On a hunt for truth amid the shrieks of wild animals, the clouds, overhead race swiftly by?. Adventures from left to right: Mike Liston, Buddy Davis, Dan Specht, George Detwiler, and John Whitmore.
LOCKED in a remote, frozen wasteland where man has rarely been lie remains of creatures so mysterious, science can scarcely believe the truth.
A team of scientists and researchers endured incredible hardships to reach a site many would rather avoid?the Alaskan wilderness?and in the process, uncovered unfossilized dinosaur bones. The implications are enormous, for how can dinosaurs be 65 million years old if their bones are still unfossilized?
Join the team and thrill at the photographs and tales of danger, as The Great Alaskan Dinosaur Adventure drops a bombshell on the scientific community.
