On bisimple weakly inverse semigroups

S. Madhavan

Vol. 90 (1980), No. 2, 397–409

A regular semigroup S with a commutative subsemigroup of idempotents E is called weakly inverse if for any a S the set Ea of inverses aof a for which aa E is nonempty and for all, a,b S, Eab EbEa and Ea = Eb a = b. In this paper we show that in a weakly inverse semigroup S with partial identities the -class R which contains the partial identities is a right skew semigroup and conversely, every right skew semigroup R may be so represented. If R satisfies the condition that for every a,b R there exists a c R such that Ra Rb = Rc, then our considerations lead to a construction of bisimple weakly inverse semigroup with partial identities.
