Splitting left distributive semigroups.(English)Zbl 0705.20054

A semigroup is left distributive if the identity $$xyz=xyxz$$ holds in it. In these semigroups the idempotents form a left ideal. The paper studies products of idempotent left distributive semigroups and of left distributive semigroups that have only one idempotent.
