Bifurcus semigroups and rings

Donald Adams, Rene Ardila, David Hannasch, Audra Kosh, Hanah McCarthy, Vadim Ponomarenko and Ryan Rosenbaum

Vol. 2 (2009), No. 3, 351–356

A bifurcus semigroup or ring is defined as possessing the strong property that every nonzero nonunit nonatom may be factored into two atoms. We develop basic properties of such objects as well as their relationships to well-known semigroups and rings.
