## Abstract

A subsemigroup S of a semigroup Q is a straight left order in Q and Q is a semigroup of straight left quotients of S if every qQ can be written as

b in Q and if, in addition, every element of S that is square cancellable lies in a subgroup of Q. Here a denotes the group inverse of a in some (hence any) subgroup of Q. If S is a straight left order in Q, then Q is necessarily regular; the idea is that Q has a better understood structure than that of S. Necessary and sufficient conditions exist on a semigroup S for S to be a straight left order. The technique is to consider a pair

on a regular semigroup, and if certain subsemigroups of S are right reversible, then S is a straight left order. The conditions required for

to satisfy are somewhat lengthy. In this paper we aim to circumvent some of these by specialising in two ways. First we consider only fully stratified left orders, that is, the case where
\documentclass{aastex} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{bm} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{pifont} \usepackage{stmaryrd} \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{upgreek} \usepackage{portland,xspace} \usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra} \pagestyle{empty} \DeclareMathSizes{10}{9}{7}{6} \begin{document} $$\mathcal{P} = ( \leqslant _{\mathcal{L}^ * } , \leqslant _{\mathcal{R}^ * } )$$ \end{document}
(certainly the most natural choice for

) and the other is to insist that S be abundant, that is, every

# Semigroups of inverse quotients

Periodica Mathematica Hungarica
Authors: Nassraddin Ghroda and Victoria Gould

## Abstract

We examine, in a general setting, a notion of inverse semigroup of left quotients, which we call left I-quotients. This concept has appeared, and has been used, as far back as Clifford’s seminal work describing bisimple inverse monoids in terms of their right unit subsemigroups. As a consequence of our approach, we find a straightforward way of extending Clifford’s work to bisimple inverse semigroups (a step that has previously proved to be awkward). We also put some earlier work of Gantos into a wider and clearer context, and pave the way for further progress.

# Membership of A ∨ G for classes of finite weakly abundant semigroups

Periodica Mathematica Hungarica
Authors: John Fountain, Gracinda Gomes and Victoria Gould

## Abstract

We consider the question of membership of AG, where A and G are the pseudovarieties of finite aperiodic semigroups, and finite groups, respectively. We find a straightforward criterion for a semigroup S lying in a class of finite semigroups that are weakly abundant, to be in AG. The class of weakly abundant semigroups contains the class of regular semigroups, but is much more extensive; we remark that any finite monoid with semilattice of idempotents is weakly abundant. To study such semigroups we develop a number of techniques that may be of interest in their own right.
