Maximal Orders In Completely 0-simple Semigroups

  • John Fountain
  • Victoria Gould


Fountain, Gould and Smith introduced the concept of equivalence of orders in a semigroup and the notion of a maximal order. We examine these ideas in the context of orders in completely 0-simple semigroups with particular emphasis on abundant orders.
