Presentations for subsemigroups - applications to ideals of semigroups

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A method for finding presentations for subsemigroups of semigroups defined by presentations is used to investigate when ideals are finitely presented. It is shown that an ideal of a finitely presented semigroup is not necessarily finitely presented, even if it is finitely generated as a semigroup. By way of contrast, it is then proved that in a free product of two, or indeed of finitely many, finite semigroups, every right ideal which is finitely generated as a semigroup is finitely presented.
