In this work, we review a number of methods for finding a finite algebra with a given congruence lattice, including searching for intervals in subgroup lattices. We also consider methods for proving that algebras with a given congruence lattice exist without actually constructing them. By combining these well known methods with a new method we have developed, we prove that with one possible exception every lattice with at most seven elements is isomorphic to the congruence lattice of a finite algebra.

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.

This book is an account of several quite different approaches to Artin's braid groups, involving self-distributive algebra, uniform finite trees, combinatorial group theory, mapping class groups, laminations, and hyperbolic geometry.

These are notes of a mini-course of group theory for high school students. This course covers the most basic parts of group theory with many applications. The notes contain many exercises, which are necessary for understanding the main text.

The book presents in a unified manner the more fundamental aspects of finite groups and their applications, and at the same time preserves the advantage which arises when each branch of an extensive subject is written by a specialist in that branch.
