Groups associated with minimal flows

Let $S$ be topological semigroup, we consider an appropriate semigroup compactification $\widehat{S}$ of $S$. In this paper we study the connection between subgroups of a maximal group in a minimal left ideal of $\widehat{S}$, which arise as equivalence classes of some closed left congruence, and the minimal flow characterized by the left congruence. A particular topology is defined on a maximal g…
