by - University of Nebraska-Lincoln
In the present paper, I will discuss some of these connections between group theory and semigroup theory, and I will also discuss some rather surprising contrasts between the theories. I will focus primarily on the theory of inverse semigroups.

Book cover: Lectures on Topics In The Theory of Infinite GroupsLectures on Topics In The Theory of Infinite Groups
by - Tata Institute of Fundamental Research
As the title suggests, the aim was not a systematic treatment of infinite groups. Instead the author tried to present some of the methods and results that are new and look promising, and that have not yet found their way into the books.
