Let m, m′ ∈ M be R-equivalent. Let u, u′ ∈ M be such that m = m ′ u′ , m′ = mu . The mappings ρu : q → qu, 1016 ρu′ : q ′ → q ′ u′ are bijections from L(m) onto L(m′ ) inverse to each other which map an R-class onto itself. Version 14 janvier 2009 J. Berstel, D. Perrin and C. Reutenauer fig0_06 42 1017 1018 1019 1. P RELIMINARIES Proof. We first verify that ρu maps L(m) into L(m′ ). If q ∈ L(m), then M q = M m and therefore M qu = M mu = M m′ . Hence qu = ρu (q) is in L(m′ ). Analogously, ρu′ maps L(m′ ) into L(m).

Let m, n ∈ I \ 0. By 2, the right ideal mM and the left ideal M n are 0-minimal. Since M is prime, there exists u ∈ M such that mun = 0. The right ideal mM being 0-minimal, we have mM = munM and therefore mRmun. In the same way, munLn. It follows that mDn. This shows that I \ 0 is contained in a D-class. Conversely, if m ∈ I \ 0, n ∈ M and mDn, there exists a k ∈ M such that mM = kM and M k = M n. Consequently I = M mM = M kM = M nM and this implies n ∈ I \ 0. 7 Let us show that I \0 is a regular D-class.

4 (σi , w) . 20) all but a finite number of terms are different from 0. We easily check that for a locally finite family (σi )i∈I of elements of K A and any τ in K A , we have σi = τ i∈I τ σi . i∈I Let σ ∈ K A be a series. The constant term of σ is the element (σ, 1) of K. If σ has zero constant term, then the family (σ n )n≥0 is locally finite, because the support of σ n does not contain words of length less than n. We denote by σ ∗ and by σ + the series σ∗ = σn , n≥0 692 σ+ = σn . n≥1 The series σ ∗ is called star of σ.
