This work offers concise coverage of the structure theory of semigroups. It examines constructions and descriptions of semigroups and emphasizes finite, commutative, regular and inverse semigroups. Many structure theorems on regular and commutative semigroups are introduced.;College or university bookstores may order five or more copies at a special student price which is available upon request from Marcel Dekker, Inc.
". . .a good textbook for those intending to learn more about the structure of semigroups and a useful reference book for semigroup theorists. "
