Dr. Sreeja V. K., “Construction of Inverse Unit Regular Monoids from a Semilattice and a Group”, International Journal of Engineering & Technology (UAE), vol. 7, no. 4.36, pp. 950-952, 2018.[Abstract] This paper is a continuation of a previous paper [6] in which the structure of certain unit regular semigroups called R-strongly unit regular monoids has been studied. A monoid S is said to be unit regular if for each element s S there exists an element u in the group of units G of S such that s = sus. Hence 1 s suu where su is an idempotent and 1 u is a unit. A unit regular monoid S is said to be a unit regular inverse monoid if the set of idempotents of S form a semilattice. Since inverse monoids are R unipotent, every element of a unit regular inverse monoid can be written as s = eu where the idempotent part e is unique and u is a unit. Here we give a detailed study of inverse unit regular monoids and the results are mainly based on [10]. The relations between the semilattice of idempotents and the group of units in unit regular inverse monoids are better identified in this case More »»IJET-24927.pdf |

Dr. Sreeja V. K., “Unit Regular Inverse Monoids and Clifford Monoids (UAE)”, International journal of Engineering and Technology, vol. 7, no. 2.13, pp. 306-308, 2018.[Abstract] Let S be a unit regular semigroup with group of units G = G(S) and semilattice of idempotents E = E(S). Then for every there is a such that Then both xu and ux are idempotents and we can write or .Thus every element of a unit regular inverse monoid is a product of a group element and an idempotent. It is evident that every L-class and every R-class contains exactly one idempotent where L and R are two of Greens relations. Since inverse monoids are R unipotent, every element of a unit regular inverse monoid can be written as s = eu where the idempotent part e is unique and u is a unit. A completely regular semigroup is a semigroup in which every element is in some subgroup of the semigroup. A Clifford semigroup is a completely regular inverse semigroup. Characterization of unit regular inverse monoids in terms of the group of units and the semilattice of idempotents is a problem often attempted and in this direction we have studied the structure of unit regular inverse monoids and Clifford monoids.

Dr. Sreeja V. K., “Characterization of Some Unit Regular Orthodox Submonoids of the Full Transformation Semigroup T(X)”, Southeast Asian Bulletin of Mathematics, vol. 40, no. 1, pp. 125-129, 2016.[Abstract] . A unit regular monoid S is said to be R− strongly unit regular if for any x, y ∈ S, xRy (where R is the Green’s relation) implies that there exists an element u in the group of units of S such that x = yu. The full transformation semigroup T (X) on a finite set X is seen to be R-strongly unit regular [4]. Hence the unit regular orthodox monoid ML exist for T (X) [10]. Let G(X) denote the group of units of T (X). For a L− class L of T (X), TL is defined to be TL = ∪e∈E(L)He which is the union of the group H− classes (where E(L) denote the set of idempotents of the L− class L). Also GL is a maximal subgroup of G(X) making TL ∪ GL an unit regular orthodox monoid and ML is defined to be TL ∪ GL [10]. Here we characterize the unit regular orthodox monoid ML of T (X). In the case of T (X) we also identify the minimal subgroup G1L of G(X) which makes TL ∪ G1L an unit regular orthodox monoid. More »» |

Dr. Sreeja V. K. and Rajan, A. R., “Some Properties of Regular Monoids”, Southeast Asian Bulletin of Mathematics, vol. 39, pp. 891 - 902, 2015.[Abstract] A monoid S with group of units G is said to be regular if for each x ∈ S, there is an element a ∈ S such that x = xax. We consider arbitrary monoids and describe various properties depending on the group of units. Properties of regular monoids and description of some special classes of regular monoids are also given.

Dr. Sreeja V. K., “Orthodox Unit Regular Submonoids of the Full Transformation Semigroup T(X)”, Southeast Asian Bulletin of Mathematics, vol. 39, pp. 711 - 715, 2015.[Abstract] A unit regular monoid S is said to be R-strongly unit regular if for any x, y ∊ S, xRy (where R is the Green's relation implies that there exists an element u in the group of units G of S such that x = yu. The full transformation semigroup T (X) on a finite set X is seen to be R-strongly unit regular [11]. Hence the unit regular orthodox monoid QR exists for T (X) [10]. Let G(X) denote the group of units of T (X). For an R-class R of a R-strongly unit regular monoid S, ZR is defined to be ∪e∊E(R)(HG)e, where E(R) denote the set of idempotents in the R-class R and (HG)e denote the HG class containing e. (Here the equivalence HG is defined on the monoid S as xHGy if and only if x = yu and x = u'y for some unit u, u' in G.) Then QR = ZR ∪G'R (See the Remark after Theorem 1.2) is an unit regular orthodox submonoid of S. Here we characterize the unit regular orthodox monoid QR of T (X). [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] More »» |

A regular monoid S is said to be unit regular if for any x ∈ S, there exists an element u in the group of units of S such that x = xux.

Moreover in a unit regular semigroup the trivial group is necessarily a band with unity. We now describe some maximal unit regular subsemigroups of the full transformation semigroup T(X) whose group of units is {1}. They are maximal subbands of T(X). More »» |

The relations between the biordered set of idempotents and the group of units in unit regular semigroups are better identified here. Conversely, starting from a regular biordered set E and a group G we construct a R-strongly unit regular semigroup S for which the set of idempotents E(S) is isomorphic to E as a biordered set and the group of units G(S) is isomorphic to G. The conditions to be satisfied by G and E are also listed. More »» |
