\(G\)-loops are loops that admit a transitive group of automorphisms. Abstract \(G\)-loops were studied by many authors [see, for example, R. Bruck, A survey on binary systems (Berlin 1971; Zbl 0206.30301)]. The author finds local invariants of an analytic \(G\)-loop, gives interesting examples of \(G\)-loops and formulates the problem of construction of the general theory of \(G\)-loops. The \(G\)-loops are studied in the paper via the corresponding \(G\)-webs.
