Automorphism groups of countable algebraically closed graphs and endomorphisms of the random graph
MetadataShow full item record
We establish links between countable algebraically closed graphs and the endomorphisms of the countable universal graph R. As a consequence we show that, for any countable graph Γ, there are uncountably many maximal subgroups of the endomorphism monoid of R isomorphic to the automorphism group of Γ. Further structural information about End R is established including that Aut Γ arises in uncountably many ways as a Schützenberger group. Similar results are proved for the countable universal directed graph and the countable universal bipartite graph.

Endomorphisms of Fraïssé limits and automorphism groups of algebraically closed relational structures McPhee, Jillian Dawn (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - ThesisLet Ω be the Fraïssé limit of a class of relational structures. We seek to answer the following semigroup theoretic question about Ω. What are the group H-classes, i.e. the maximal subgroups, of End(Ω)? Fraïssé limits for ...
