Residual finiteness of finitely generated commutative semigroups

W. Homer Carlisle, III

Vol. 36 (1971), No. 1, 99–101
Abstract

This paper gives a short semigroup theoretic proof that finitely generated commutative semigroups are residually finite. The approach is to use Schein’s classification of subdirectly irreducible commutative semigroups and show that a finitely generated subdirectly irreducible commutative semigroup is finite.
