This monograph presents the complete theory of smooth quasigroups and loops, as well as its geometric and algebraic applications. Based on a generalisation of the Lie-group theory, it establishes new backgrounds for differential geometry in the form of nonlinear geometric algebra and loopuscular' geometry. It will prove useful in applications in such diverse fields as mathematical physics, relativity, Poisson and symplectic mechanics, quantum gravity, dislocation theory, etc.

Audience: This volume will be of interest to researchers, lecturers and postgraduate students whose work involves geometry, group theory, nonassociative rings and algebras, and mathematical and theoretical physics.
