Abstract

In this note we consider identities in the alphabet X = {xy}. This note is self-contained and the aim is to describe gradually the identities partition (with three parameters) of the free semigroup X+ for the class of monoids Bn = {ab | ba = bn} (n > 0).

Keywords

  • Semigroup identities
