|A paper describing research interests in algebra at Bangor, which have to a large extent been motivated by problems in algebraic topology and homological algebra. The recent spate of new and exciting concepts (crossed modules, crossed n-cubes, nonabelian tensor products, etc.) originating in those two areas has opened out many algebraic aspects of the theory and applications which are waiting to be investigated. Topics include: group theory; and crossed modules of groups, rings, algebras and modules, monoids. Also, links to similar papers on algebraic topology and homological algebra, category theory and combinatorics, group representation theory and semigroup theory.|
