Summary: [For the entire collection see Zbl 0635.00001.]
We study the fundamental relation introduced by Koskas as the transitive closure of a basic relation in a given hypergroup. We use the quotient set, which is a group, in order to define a semi-direct hyperproduct of two hypergroups. We obtain an extension of hypergroups by hypergroups. Moreover we reveal some hypergroups in a given hypergroup.
