If you have a question about this talk, please contact JosÃ© Siqueira. It is well known that split extensions of groups H by N correspond to actions of H on N. This is not so for monoids, however actions of monoids do correspond to a certain class of split extensions, called the Schreier extensions. A split extension comprising kernel k: N → G, cokernel e: G → H and splitting s: H → G is said to be Schreier when for each g in G, there is a unique n in N and h in H such that g = k(n)s(h). The uniqueness condition can be relaxed providing the notion of a weakly Schreier extension, of which the Artin glueings of topological spaces provide a natural example. In this talk we provide a characterization of weakly Schreier extensions between monoids N and H, as a certain quotient of N x H, paired with something that resembles an action. We then use this characterization to construct some new examples of weakly Schreier extensions.
