Abstract

In the present paper, we consider the semigroup $O_{n,p}$ of all order-preserving full transformations $\alpha $ on an n-elements chain $X_{n}$% , where $p\in X_{n}$ is the only fixed point of $\alpha $. The nilpotent semigroup $O_{n,p}$ was first studied by Ayik et al. in 2011. Moreover, $% O_{n,1}$ is the maximal nilpotent subsemigroup of the Catalan Monoid $C_{n}$. Its rank is the difference of the $(n-1)$th and the $(n-2)$th Catalan number. The aim of the present paper is to provide further fundamental information about the nilpotent semigroup $O_{n,p}$. We will calculate the rank of $O_{n,p}$ for $% p>1$ and provide a semigroup presentation for $O_{n,1}$.
