The traditional biennial international conference of abelian group theorists was held in August, 1987 at the University of Western Australia in Perth. With some 40 participants from five continents, the conference yielded a variety of papers indicating the healthy state of the field and showing the significant advances made in many areas since the last such conference in Oberwolfach in 1985. This volume brings together the papers presented at the Perth conference, together with a few others submitted by those unable to attend.
The first section of the book is concerned with the structure of $p$-groups. It begins with a survey on H. Ulm's contributions to abelian group theory and related areas and also describes the surprising interaction between set theory and the structure of abelian $p$-groups. Another group of papers focuses on automorphism groups and the endomorphism rings of abelian groups. The book also examines various aspects of torsion-free groups, including the theory of their structure and torsion-free groups with many automorphisms. After one paper on mixed groups, the volume closes with a group of papers dealing with properties of modules which generalize corresponding properties of abelian groups.
