We introduce the notion of path extensions of tiling semigroups and investigate their properties. We show that the path extension of a tiling semigroup yields a strongly F *-inverse cover of the tiling semigroup and that it is isomorphic to an HNN * extension of its semilattice of idempo-tents.
HNN extensions of inverse semigroups, where the associated inverse subsemigroups are order ideals of the base, are defined by means of a construction based upon the isomorphism between the categories of inverse semigroups and inductive groupoids. The resulting HNN extension may conveniently be described by an inverse semigroup presentation , and we… (More)
