What name exists for a Lie group of greater scope than E8? EIX? :dunno:
E8 is the largest finite one.
No, it's not. You probably mean "finite-dimensional", not "finite" (because there is no such thing as a finite Lie group), but it's still not. Trivially, Lie groups of every dimension exist - Rn, for example.
