Upper Bounds for the Essential Dimension of $E_7$ This paper gives a new upper bound for the essential dimension and the
essential 2-dimension of the split simply connected group of type
$E_7$ over a field of characteristic not 2 or 3. In particular,
$\operatorname{ed}(E_7) \leq 29$, and $\operatorname{ed}(E_7;2) \leq 27$.

Rationality and the Jordan-Gatti-Viniberghi decomposition We verify
our earlier conjecture
and use it to prove that the
semisimple parts of the rational Jordan-Kac-Vinberg decompositions of
a rational vector all lie in a single rational orbit.

Admissible Sequences for Twisted Involutions in Weyl Groups
Let $W$ be a Weyl group, $\Sigma$ a set of simple reflections in $W$
related to a basis $\Delta$ for the root system $\Phi$ associated with
$W$ and $\theta$ an involution such that $\theta(\Delta) = \Delta$. We
show that the set of $\theta$-twisted involutions in $W$,
$\mathcal{I}_{\theta} = \{w\in W \mid \theta(w) = w^{-1}\}$ is in one
to one correspondence with the set of regular involutions
$\mathcal{I}_{\operatorname{Id}}$. The elements of $\mathcal{I}_{\theta}$ are
characterized by sequences in $\Sigma$ which induce an ordering called
the Richardson-Springer Poset. In particular, for $\Phi$ irreducible,
the ascending Richardson-Springer Poset of $\mathcal{I}_{\theta}$,
for nontrivial $\theta$ is identical to the descending
Richardson-Springer Poset of $\mathcal{I}_{\operatorname{Id}}$.

Zero Cycles on a Twisted Cayley Plane Let $k$ be a field of characteristic not $2,3$.
Let $G$ be an exceptional simple algebraic group over $k$
of type $\F$, $^1{\E_6}$ or $\E_7$ with trivial Tits algebras.
Let $X$ be a projective $G$-homogeneous variety.
If $G$ is of type $\E_7$, we assume in addition
that the respective
parabolic subgroup is of type $P_7$.
The main result of the paper says that
the degree map on the group of zero cycles of $X$
is injective.

Another Proof of Totaro's Theorem on $E_8$-Torsors We give a short proof of Totaro's theorem that every$E_8$-torsor over
a field $k$ becomes trivial over a finiteseparable extension of $k$of
degree dividing $d(E_8)=2^63^25$.

Rationality and Orbit Closures Suppose we are given a finite-dimensional vector space $V$ equipped
with an $F$-rational action of a linearly algebraic group $G$, with
$F$ a characteristic zero field. We conjecture the following: to each
vector $v\in V(F)$ there corresponds a canonical $G(F)$-orbit of
semisimple vectors of $V$. In the case of the adjoint action, this
orbit is the $G(F)$-orbit of the semisimple part of $v$, so this
conjecture can be considered a generalization of the Jordan
decomposition. We prove some cases of the conjecture.

AlgÃ¨bres simples centrales de degrÃ© 5 et $E_8$ As a consequence of a theorem of Rost-Springer, we establish that the
cyclicity problem for central simple algebra of degree~5 on fields
containg a fifth root of unity is equivalent to the study of
anisotropic elements of order 5 in the split group of type~$E_8$.
