This book, along with volume I, which appeared previously, presents a survey of the structure and representation theory of semi groups. Volume II goes more deeply than was possible in volume I into the theories of minimal ideals in a semi group, inverse semi groups, simple semi groups, congruences on a semi group, and the embedding of a semi group in a group. Among the more important recent developments of which an extended treatment is presented are B. M. Sain's theory of the representations of an arbitrary semi group by partial one-to-one transformations of a set, L. Redei's theory of finitely generated commutative semi groups, J. M. Howie's theory of amalgamated free products of semi groups, and E. J. Tully's theory of representations of a semi group by transformations of a set. Also a full account is given of Malcev's theory of the congruences on a full transformation semi more
