Ideal extensions of semigroups

Pierre A. Grillet and Mario Petrich

Vol. 26 (1968), No. 3, 493–508
Abstract

An ideal extension (here called an extension) of a semigroup S by a semigroup with zero Q is a semigroup V such that S is an ideal of V and the Rees quotient semigroup V∕S is isomorphic to Q. To study the structure of these extensions, special kinds of extensions are introduced, called strict and pure extensions. It is proved that any extension of S is a pure extension of a strict extension of S; also, if Q has no proper nonzero ideals, any extension of S by Q is either strict or pure. Dense extensions, closely related to Ljapin’s “densely embedded ideals”, are special cases of pure extensions. When S is weakly reductive, constructions of strict, pure, and arbitrary extensions of S are given, including descriptions of the ramification function.
