Suppose a group G can be generated by two subgroups, P1 and P2, both isomorphic to S4 which have intersection isomorphic to D8- the dihedral group of order 8. Then G is known as a faithful completion of the Goldschmidt G3-amalgam. In this thesis we consider the alternating groups as faithful completions of the Goldschmidt G3-amalgam.
