Cohomology and extensions of regular semigroups

  • M. Loganathan (a1)


Let S be a regular semigroup and A a D(S)-module. We proved in a previous paper that the set Ext(S, A) of equivalence classes of extensions of A by S admits an abelian group structure and studied its functorial properties. The main aim of this paper is to describe Ext(S, A) as a second cohomology group of certain chain complex.
