In these lectures, we shall be concerned with the differentiability and the representation of one-parameter semi-groups of bounded linear operators on a Banach space and with some of their applications to the initial value problem (Cauchy's problem) for differential equations, especially for the diffusion equation (heat equation) and the wave equation.

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.

A self-contained account of the elementary theory of groupoids and some of its uses in group theory and topology. Category theory appears as a secondary topic whenever it is relevant to the main issue, and its treatment is by no means systematic.

The course given by the author in 1992 explains the solution by O. Mathieu of some conjectures in the representation theory of arbitrary semisimple algebraic groups. The conjectures concern filtrations of 'standard' representations.
