    The study of finite rational matrix groups reduces to the investigation of the maximal finite irreducible matrix groups and their natural lattices, which often turn out to have rather beautiful geometric and arithmetic properties. This book presents a full classification in dimensions up to 23 and with restrictions in dimensions and \(p+1\) and \(p-1\) for all prime numbers \(p\). Nonmaximal finite groups might act on several types of lattices and therefore embed into more than one maximal finite group. This gives rise to a simplicial complex interrelating the maximal finite groups and measuring the complexity of the dimension. Group theory, integral representation theory, arithmetic theory of quadratic forms and algorithmic methods are used.
