 This volume contains papers presented at the Workshop on Groups and Computation, held in October 1991. The workshop explored interactions among four areas: symbolic algebra and computer algebra, theoretical computer science, group theory, and applications of group computation. The relationships between implementation and complexity form a recurrent theme, though the papers also discuss such topics as parallel algorithms for groups, computation in associative algebras, asymptotic behavior of permutation groups, the study of finite groups using infinite reflection groups, combinatorial searching, computing with representations, and Cayley graphs as models for interconnection networks. Copublished with the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science beginning with Volume 8. Volumes 17 were copublished with the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM).
