This volume contains the proceedings of a conference on abelian groups held in August 1993 at Oberwolfach. The conference brought together fortyseven participants from all over the world and from a range of mathematical areas. Experts from model theory, set theory, noncommutative groups, module theory, and computer science discussed problems in their fields that relate to abelian group theory. This book provides a window on the frontier of this active area of research.
