%N Dimensions of the irreducible representations of the simple Lie algebra of type E8 over the complex numbers, listed in increasing order.
%C We include "1" for the 1-dimensional trivial representation and we list each dimension once, ignoring the possibility that inequivalent representations may have the same dimension.
%C Inequivalent representations can have the same dimension. For example, the highest weights 10100000 and 10000011 (with fundamental weights numbered as in Bourbaki) both correspond to irreducible representations of dimension 8634368000.

%F Given a vector of 8 nonnegative integers, the Weyl dimension formula tells you the dimension of the corresponding irreducible representation. The list of such dimensions is then sorted numerically.
%e The highest weight 00000000 corresponds to the 1-dimensional module on which E8 acts trivially. The smallest faithful representation of E8 is the adjoint representation of dimension 248 (the second term in the sequence), with highest weight 00000001. The smallest non-fundamental representation has dimension 27000 (the fourth term), corresponding to the highest weight 00000002.
