The problem of characterising all finite near-fields remained open until Zassenhaus [28], in 1936, showed the addition of seven proper finite near-fields to the list of Dickson's, gave the complete picture. It appears that near-rings proper were first looked at in 1932 by H. Fitting [12]....[Show more]
