This dissertation is probably the first systematic study of locally finite quasi-fields, apart from the classification of locally finite near-fields by S. Dancs Groves [Abh. Math. Semin. Univ. Hamb. 48, 89-107 (1979; Zbl 0413.12028)]. The author constructs and investigates large classes of locally finite (generalized) André quasi-fields, thus extending results of D. A. Foulser [Math. Z. 100, 380-395 (1967; Zbl 0152.189)]. It is not known if there exist uncountable locally finite quasi-fields.
