Inverse semigroups of partial transformations and 𝜃-classes

Norman R. Reilly

Vol. 41 (1972), No. 1, 215–235
Abstract

If S is an inverse semigroup and 𝜃 is the relation on the lattice Λ(S) of congruences on S defined by saying that two congruences ρ12 are 𝜃-equivalent if and only if they induce the same partition of the idempotents then 𝜃 is a congruence on Λ(S) and each 𝜃-class is a complete modular sublattice of Λ(S). If X is a partially ordered set then JX denotes the inverse semigroup of one-to-one partial transformations of X which are order isomorphisms of ideals of X onto ideals of X, while if X is a semilattice, TX denotes the inverse subsemigroup of JX consisting of those elements α whose domain Δ(α) and range (α) are principal ideals. It is shown that any inverse semigroup is isomorphic to an inverse subsemigroup of JX for some semilattice X.
