Abstract
Let N be the discrete additive semigroup of natural numbers and let βN be the StoneČech compactification of N.
The addition on N extends to an operation + on βN making it a right topological semigroup, and to an operation ∗ making it a left topological semigroup. The semigroup (βN,∗) is the opposite of the semigroup (βN,+):
p∗ q=q+p.
We list all 3element idempotent semigroups that have algebraic copies in (βN,+).
As a consequence we obtain that (βN,+) and (βN,∗) are not algebraically isomorphic.
