On a Class of Completely Join Prime J-Trivial Semigroups with Unique Involution
Semigroup, Involution, Pseudovariety, Completely join prime
A finite algebra is completely join prime if whenever it belongs to the complete join of some collection of pseudovarieties, then it belongs to one of the pseudovarieties. An infinite class of completely join prime J-trivial semigroups with unique involution is introduced to demonstrate the incompatibility between the lattice of pseudovarieties of involution semigroups and the lattice of pseudovarieties of semigroups. Examples are also exhibited to show that a finite involution semigroup and its semigroup reduct need not be simultaneously completely join prime.
