Abstract

Let S be a regular semigroup and ConS the congruence lattice of S. If C" role="presentation" style="box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; display: inline-block; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; font-size: 14.4px; text-indent: 0px; text-align: left; text-transform: none; letter-spacing: normal; word-spacing: normal; word-wrap: normal; white-space: nowrap; float: none; direction: ltr; max-width: none; max-height: none; min-width: 0px; min-height: 0px; border: 0px; position: relative;">C is an isomorphism class of semigroups and ϱϵConS, then we say that ϱ is over C" role="presentation" style="box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; display: inline-block; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; font-size: 14.4px; text-indent: 0px; text-align: left; text-transform: none; letter-spacing: normal; word-spacing: normal; word-wrap: normal; white-space: nowrap; float: none; direction: ltr; max-width: none; max-height: none; min-width: 0px; min-height: 0px; border: 0px; position: relative;">C if the idempotent ϱ-class belong to C" role="presentation" style="box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; display: inline-block; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; font-size: 14.4px; text-indent: 0px; text-align: left; text-transform: none; letter-spacing: normal; word-spacing: normal; word-wrap: normal; white-space: nowrap; float: none; direction: ltr; max-width: none; max-height: none; min-width: 0px; min-height: 0px; border: 0px; position: relative;">C. On ConS we can introduce the relations U, V, Tl, Tr and T as follows: if ϱ, θ, ϵConS, then we say that ϱ and θ are U− [V−, Tl−, Tr−, T−] related if both ϱ/ϱ∩θ and θ/ϱ∩gqover completely simple semigroups [rectangular band, left groups, right groups, groups]. It is shown that U, V, Tl, Tr and T are complete congruences on ConS.Various other characterizations of these congruences on ConS are obtained. Some of the congruences are studied for completely regular semigroups, orthodox semigroups and bands of groups. Further, since for any regular semigroup S, VTlTr is the identity relation, we obtain a subdirect decomposition of ConS.
