Let be the full transformation semigroup on the set and let .
Then is a sub-semigroup of determined by a nonempty subset of . In this paper, we give a necessary and sufficient condition for to be regular. In the case that is not regular, the largest regular sub-semigroup is obtained and this sub-semigroup
is shown to determine the Green's relations on . Also, a class
of maximal inverse sub-semigroups of is obtained.
