Abstract
We show that there is an inclusionpreserving bijection between the set of all normal subsemigroups of a semigroup S and the set of all group congruences on S. We describe also group congruences on Einversive (E)semigroups. In particular, we generalize the result of Meakin (J. Aust. Math. Soc. 13:259–266, 1972) concerning the description of the least group congruence on an orthodox semigroup, the result of Howie (Proc. Edinb. Math. Soc. 14:71–79, 1964) concerning the description of ρ∨σ in an inverse semigroup S, where ρ is a congruence and σ is the least group congruence on S, some results of Jones (Semigroup Forum 30:1–16, 1984) and some results contained in the book of Petrich (Inverse Semigroups, 1984). Also, one of the main aims of this paper is to study of group congruences on Eunitary semigroups. In particular, we prove that in any Einversive semigroup, \(\mathcal{H}\cap\sigma\subseteq\kappa\) , where κ is the least Eunitary congruence. This result is equivalent to the statement that in an arbitrary Eunitary Einversive semigroup S, \(\mathcal{H}\cap\sigma= 1_{S}\) .
