This book is an indispensable source for anyone with an interest in semigroup theory or whose research overlaps with this increasingly important and active field of mathematics. It clearly emphasizes "pure" semigroup theory, in particular the various classes of regular semigroups. More than 150 exercises, accompanied by relevant references to the literature, give pointers to areas of the subject not explicitly covered in the text.

From the Back Cover:

The emphasis throughout is unashamedly on what might be called 'pure' semigroup theory; the inclusion of significant amount of application, for example, to automata, languages and machines, would have involved a huge, and probably unacceptable, increase in the length (and the price) of the book. The only mild genuflection in the direction of applied semigroup theory occurs in Chapter 7, where the brief section on variable length codes gives some hint a fascinating and continually developing field.

About the Author:

John M. Howie is at University of St Andrews, Fife.
