### Abstract

We give a new construction of the minimal unitary representation of the exceptional group E_{8(8)} on a Hilbert space of complex functions in 29 variables. Due to their manifest covariance with respect to the E_{7(7)} subgroup of E_{8(8)} our formulas are simpler than previous realizations, and thus well suited for applications in superstring and M theory.
