This monograph is devoted to the study of Polygroup Theory. It begins with some basic results concerning group theory and algebraic hyperstructures, which represent the most general algebraic context, in which reality can be modeled. Most results on polygroups are collected in this book. Moreover, this monograph is the first book on this theory. The volume is highly recommended to theoreticians in pure and applied mathematics.
