The LOOPS package provides researchers in nonassociative algebra with a computational tool that integrates standard notions of loop theory with libraries of loops and group-theoretical algorithms of GAP. The package also expands GAP toward nonassociative structures.

We thank the following people for sending us remarks and comments, and for suggesting new functionality of the package: Muniru Asiru, Bjoern Assmann, Andreas Distler, Aleš Drápal, Graham Ellis, Steve Flammia, Kenneth W. Johnson, Michael K. Kinyon, Alexander Konovalov, Frank Lübeck, Jonathan D.H. Smith, David Stanovský and Glen Whitney.

The library of Moufang loops of order 243 was generated from data provided by Michael C. Slattery and Ashley L. Zenisek. The library of right conjugacy closed loops of order less than 28 was generated from data provided by Katharina Artic. The library of right Bruck loops of order 27, 81 was obtained jointly with Izabella Stuhl.

Gábor P. Nagy was supported by OTKA grants F042959 and T043758, and Petr Vojtěchovský was supported by the 2006 and 2016 University of Denver PROF grants and the Simons Foundation Collaboration Grant 210176.
