Connected quandles and ...
Petr Vojtěchovský

Quandles are an algebraic structure that models the Reidemeister transformations of a Knot, or the conjugation structure of a group. Building on ideas of Galkin, we establish a canonical representation of con nected quandles as certain configurations in transitive groups, called quandle envelopes. This characterization allows us to efficiently enumerate connected quandles of small orders.
This is joint work with A. Hulpke (CSU) and D. Stanovský (DU)
... and Transitive Groups
Alexander Hulpke

The question of classifying quandles of order 2p reduces to the question of classifying transitive groups of degree 2p such that
 G′ is transitive on {1,…, 2p}, and
 The center of a point stabilizer is not contained in a proper normal subgroup.
