Abstract


Andre first generalized the concept of a vector space, i.e., linear space, to a
structure comprising a bit more non-linearity, the so-called near-vector space
in a paper in 1974. In this talk I will give a brief introduction to the theory
of Near-vector Spaces, including discussing the main definitions and results and
speaking of the more recent work.
