Abstract

The definition of a groupoid is presented as well as examples of common structures from which a groupoid can be formed. Haar measure existence and uniqueness theorems for topological groups are used for the construction of Haar systems on groupoids. Some Haar systems are presented in addition to an example of a groupoid which admits no Haar system.
