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.

After introducing permutation notation and defining group, the author discusses the simpler properties of group that are independent of their modes of representation; composition-series of groups; isomorphism of a group with itself; etc.

In this book, for the first time, the authors represented every finite group in the form of a graph. This study is significant because properties of groups can be immediately obtained by looking at the graphs of the groups.

This book aims at introducing the reader to more advanced treatises and original papers on Groups of finite order. The subject requires for its study only an elementary knowledge of Algebra. I have tried to lighten for him the initial difficulties.
