Groups and Semigroups: Connections and Contrasts
by

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

Description:
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.

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.
