Nearrings with Identity

Though only a small fraction of all nearrings contain an identity, most of the nearrings considered in the literature or appearing in practice actually contain one. Many structural operations can benefit from that, e.g., finding direct or subdirect components, the Jacobson radical, or the Wedderburn decomposition. These problems are being attacked in [11].
