Groups and Semigroups: Connections and Contrasts

Groups and Semigroups: Connections and Contrasts
by John Meakin

Publisher: University of Nebraska-Lincoln 2005
Number of pages: 40

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. While I will briefly mention some aspects of finite semigroup theory, regular semigroup theory, and the theory of linear algebraic monoids, I will focus primarily on the theory of inverse semigroups and its connections with geometric group theory.
