The use of computers in near-ring theory This paper describes the facilities available in a computer system developed by the authors at the University of Linz, Austria, for investigating near-rings. The use of computers to investigate near-rings goes back a long way to the mid 1960s and J. R. Clay. This report opens up a new era in this field by providing a system SONATA (System Of Near-rings And Their Applications) based on GAP, the well known powerful program for groups. A description of the methods used is given. The amount of information that can be obtained is very substantial and can deal with very large near-rings, in some cases up to 10^50 elements in size. Several examples of possible use are described. This is a very useful major achievement. Computer algebra system (CAS).
