|Abstract||We focus on matrix semigroups (and algebras) on which rank is commutable [rank(AB) = rank(BA)]. It is shown that in a number of cases (for example, in dimensions less than 6), but not always, commutativity of rank entails permutability of rank [rank(A(1)A(2)...A(n)) = rank(A(sigma(1))A(sigma(2))... A(sigma(n)))]. It is shown that a commutable-rank semigroup has a natural decomposition as a semi-lattice of semigroups that have a simpler structure. While it is still unknown whether commutativity of rank entails permutability of rank for algebras, the question is reduced to the case of algebras of nilpotents.|
