About the Authors
  • These two volumes contain selected papers presented at the international conference on group theory held at St. Andrews in 1989. The themes of the conference were combinatorial and computational group theory; leading group theorists, including J.A. Green, N.D. Gupta, O.H. Kegel and J.G. Thompson, gave courses whose content is reproduced here. Also included are refereed papers presented at the meeting.
