Abstract

Let S be a finite semigroup. Consider the set p(S) of all elements of S which can be represented as a product of all the elements of S in some order. It is shown that p(S) is contained in the minimal ideal M of S and intersects each maximal subgroup H of M in essentially the same way. The main result shows that p(S) intersects H in a union of cosets of H'.
