T1 - Normally ordered semigroups
A1 - Fernandes, Vítor H.
N2 - In this paper we introduce the notion of normally ordered block-group as a natural extension of the notion of normally ordered inverse semigroup considered previously by the author. We prove that the class NOS of all normally ordered blockgroups forms a pseudovariety of semigroups and, by using theMunn representation of a block-group, we deduce the decompositions in Mal?cev products NOS = EI m POI and NOS A = N
m POI, where A, EI and N denote the pseudovarieties of all aperiodic semigroups, all semigroups with just one idempotent and all nilpotent semigroups, respectively, and POI denotes the pseudovariety of semigroups generated all semigroups of injective order-preserving partial transformations on a finite chain.
These relations are obtained after showing that BG = EI m Ecom = N m Ecom, where
BG and Ecom denote the pseudovarieties of all block-groups and all semigroups with
commuting idempotents, respectively.
