Abstract: The behavior of the images of a fixed element of order in irreducible representations of a classical algebraic group in characteristic with highest weights large enough with respect to and this element is investigated. More precisely, let be a classical algebraic group of rank over an algebraically closed field of characteristic . Assume that an element of order is conjugate to that of an algebraic group of the same type and rank naturally embedded into . Next, an integer function on the set of dominant weights of and a constant that depend only upon , and a polynomial of degree one are defined. It is proved that the image of in the irreducible representation of with highest weight contains more than Jordan blocks of size if and are not too small and .
