Linguistic Note on Dipper Semigroup
The term dipper semigroup appears to have been coined by Seth Warner in an article exploring commutative inductive semigroups.
The name arises as a result of a suggestion by Seth Warner in his Modern Algebra, where he exploits the analogy by means of the shape of the Big Dipper constellation.
