Abstract

Let ℐn be the symmetric inverse semigroup on Xn = {1, 2,…, n}, and let 𝒟𝒫n and 𝒪𝒟𝒫n be its subsemigroups of partial isometries and of order-preserving partial isometries of Xn, respectively. In this article, we investigate the cycle structure of a partial isometry and characterize the Green's relations on 𝒟𝒫n and 𝒪𝒟𝒫n. We show that 𝒪𝒟𝒫n is a 0-E-unitary inverse semigroup. We also investigate the ranks of 𝒟𝒫n and 𝒪𝒟𝒫n.
