Arithmetic of block monoids. (English) Zbl 1108.11084
Summary: We investigate block monoids, the monoid of zero-sum sequences, over abelian groups and their divisor-closed submonoids. We derive some results that can be used as tools when investigating the arithmetic of such monoids. Moreover, we investigate block monoids over so-called simple sets, the somehow simplest kind of sets with the property that the block monoids have non-unique factorization.
