On a generalization of transformation semigroups that preserve equivalences
Nares Sawatraksa^{*}, Chaiwat Namnak
ABSTRACT: Let T(X) be the full transformation semigroup on a nonempty set X. For an equivalence relation σ on
X, Pei introduced and studied the subsemigroup of T(X) defined by T(X,σ) = {α ∈ T(X) : ∀x, y ∈ X,(x, y) ∈ σ
implies (xα, yα) ∈ σ}, which is called a transformation semigroup preserving the equivalence σ. In this paper, for two
equivalence relations σ, ρ with ρ ⊆ σ on a nonempty set X, we introduce the subsemigroup T(X,σ,ρ) = {α ∈ T(X) :
∀x, y ∈ X,(x, y) ∈ σ implies (xα, yα) ∈ ρg of T(X) which generalizes the notation of the subsemigroup T(X,σ)
of T(X). A necessary and sufficient condition under which T(X,σ,ρ) is a BQsemigroup (a semigroup whose biideals and quasiideals coincide) is given. We also prove that T(X,σ) of T(X) can be embedded into a semigroup of
T(Y, Z) = {α ∈ T(Y ) : Y α ⊆ Z} for some sets Y and Z with Z ⊆ Y .
