Example text

In particular, if A1 , A2 , . . , Am ⊂ N, the set {A1 , . . , Am } is an antichain of B(N) if and only if for all i = j we have both Ai ⊂ Aj and Aj ⊂ Ai . Let L ⊂ B(N) be an antichain. Set IL = {α ∈ S : there existsA ∈ Lsuch thatim(α) ⊂ A}. 2 Let S denote one of the semigroups Tn , PT n , or IS n . (i) For each antichain L ⊂ B(N) the set IL is a right ideal of S. (ii) Let L1 and L2 be two antichains in B(N). Then L1 = L2 implies IL1 = IL2 . (iii) For each right ideal I of S there exists an antichain L ⊂ B(N) such that I = IL .

If Γα contains a cycle, say (a1 , a2 , . . , am ), then a1 ∈ dom(αk ) for all k > 0 (it is easy to see that αk (a1 ) = a(1+k) mod m ). As the zero element 0 of PT n satisﬁes dom(0) = ∅, we have αk = 0 for all k > 0 and hence the element α cannot be nilpotent. If Γα does not contain any cycle, the trajectory of each vertex a must break. More precisely, this trajectory has the form a0 = a, a1 , a2 , . . , am ∈ dom(α)). This means that αm (a) = am and that a ∈ dom(αm+1 ) since otherwise we would have αm+1 (a) = α(am ), which does not make sense since am ∈ dom(α).

This means that for y ∈ dom(β) the equality (γα)(y) = γ(α(y)) implies that y ∈ dom(γα). 3) implies that (γα)(y) = γ(α(y)) = β(y). This means that β = γα and thus β ∈ Sα. Thus X ⊂ Sα completing the proof. 2) can be omitted. If S = IS n , then the restriction of πα to dom(α) becomes the equality relation. Hence dom(β) ⊂ dom(α) automatically implies πα ⊂ πβ . 2) can be omitted. The number of all unordered partitions N = N1 ∪ N2 ∪ · · · ∪ Nk of the set N into disjoint unions of nonempty blocks is called the nth Bell number and is denoted by Bn .
