This group has formed around Prof. Günter Pilz. One of its main research interests lies in nearrings: generalised rings that might generally be described as rings (N,+,*) where the addition is not necessarily abelian and only one distributive law holds. Or they can be defined axiomatically. Nearrings arise naturally in studying functions on a group (G,+). M(G) = (f:G>G,+,o) is then a nearring which is not a ring. E(G) the additive group generated by all the endomorphisms of G is an important subnearring of M(G) which generalises the concept of of an endomorphism ring on an abelian group to the nonabelian case.
