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.

This book defines new classes of groupoids, like matrix groupoid, polynomial groupoid, interval groupoid, and polynomial groupoid. This book introduces 77 new definitions substantiated and described by 426 examples and 150 theorems.

The book covers the basic contemporary theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras. This classic graduate text focuses on the study of semisimple Lie algebras, developing the necessary theory along the way. Written in an informal style.
