ABUNDANT SEMIGROUPS WITH QUASI-IDEAL S-ADEQUATE TRANSVERSALS Kong, Xiangjun; Wang, Pei;
In this paper, the connection of the inverse transversal with the adequate transversal is explored. It is proved that if S is an abundant semigroup with an adequate transversal , then S is regular if and only if is an inverse semigroup. It is also shown that adequate transversals of a regular semigroup are just its inverse transversals. By means of a quasi-adequate semigroup and a right normal band, we construct an abundant semigroup containing a quasi-ideal S-adequate transversal and conversely, every such a semigroup can be constructed in this manner. It is simpler than the construction of Guo and Shum  through an SQ-system and the construction of El-Qallali  by W(E, S).
