We introduce a class of finite semigroups obtained by considering Rees quotients of numerical semigroups. Several natural questions concerning this class, as well as particular subclasses obtained by considering some special ideals, are answered while others remain open. We exhibit nice presentations for these semigroups and prove that the Rees quotients by ideals of N, the positive integers under addition, constitute a set of generators for the pseudovariety of commutative and nilpotent…

Semigroup presentations have been studied over a long period, usually as a means of providing examples of semigroups. In 1967 B. H. Neumann introduced an enumeration method for finitely presented
