The purpose of the notes is to provide some background for the engineer who may have difficulty in reading the Krohn-Rhodes paper Algebraic Theory of Machines reproduced in the appendix. The notes present a summary of the new algebraic theory aimed at giving the engineer a broad understanding of the approach, but not claiming that effective design methods have yet been developed. No attempt has been made to make the notes definitive or complete in all mathematical questions the KrohnRhodes paper should serve as the sole reference.
