In this thesis, we discuss the characterization of orthogroups by so-called disjunctions of identities. The orthogroups are a subclass of the class of completely regular semigroups, a generalization of the concept of a group. Thus there is for all elements of an orthogroup some kind of an inverse element such that both elements commute. Based on a fundamental result by A.H. Clifford, every completely regular semigroup is a semilattice of completely simple semigroups. This allows the description the gross structure of such semigroup. In particular every orthogroup is a semilattice of rectangular groups which are isomorphic to direct products of rectangular bands and groups. Semilattices of rectangular groups coming from various classes are characterized using the concept of an alternative variety, a generalization of the classical idea of a variety by Birkhoff.
After starting with some fundamental definitions and results concerning semigroups, we introduce the concept of disjunctions of identities and summarize some necessary properties. In particular we present some disjunction of identities which is sufficient for a semigroup for being completely regular. Furthermore we derive from this identity some statements concerning Rees matrix semigroups, a possible representation of completely simple semigroups. A main result of this thesis is the general description of disjunctions of identities such that a completely regular semigroup satisfying the described identity is a semilattice of left groups (right groups / groups). In this case the completely regular semigroup is an orthogroup. Furthermore we define various classes of rectangular groups such that there is an exponent taken from a set of pairwise coprime positive integers. An important result is the characterization of the class of all semilattices of particular rectangular groups (taken from the classes defined before) using a set-theoretic minimal set of disjunctions of identities. Additionally we investigate semilattices of groups (so-called Clifford semigroups). For this purpose we consider abelian groups of particular exponents and prove some well-known results from the theory of Clifford semigroups in an alternative way applying the concept of disjunctions of identities. As a practical application of the results concerning semilattices of left zero semigroups and right zero semigroups we identify a particular transformation semigroup. For more detailed information about the product of two arbitrary elements of a semilattice of semigroups we introduce the concept of strong semilattices of semigroups. It is well-known that a semilattice of groups is a strong semilattice of groups. So we can characterize a strong semilattice of groups of particular pairwise coprime exponents by disjunctions of identities. Additionally we describe the class of all strong semilattices of left zero semigroups and right zero semigroups with the help of such kind of identity, and we relate this statement to the theory of normal bands. A possible extension of the already described semilattices of rectangular groups can be achieved by an auxiliary total order (in terms of chains of semigroups). To this end we present a corresponding characterization due to disjunctions of identities which is obviously minimal. A list of open questions which have arisen during the research for this thesis, but left crude, is attached.

In the thesis there are constructed new quantizations for pseudo-differential boundary value problems (BVPs) on manifolds with edge. The shape of operators comes from Boutet de Monvel’s calculus which exists on smooth manifolds with boundary. The singular case, here with edge and boundary, is much more complicated. The present approach simplifies the operator-valued symbolic structures by using suitable Mellin quantizations on infinite stretched model cones of wedges with boundary. The Mellin symbols themselves are, modulo smoothing ones, with asymptotics, holomorphic in the complex Mellin covariable. One of the main results is the construction of parametrices of elliptic elements in the corresponding operator algebra, including elliptic edge conditions.
