**Groups and Semigroups: Connections and Contrasts**

by John Meakin

**Publisher**: University of Nebraska-Lincoln 2005**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.

**Groups as Graphs**

by

**W. B. V. Kandasamy, F. Smarandache**-

**CuArt**

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.
