We determine which topological spaces with five or fewer elements arise as the specialization topology from Green’s left quasiorder for an appropriate semigroup structure on the set. In the process, we exhibit semigroup structures that yield general classes of finite topological spaces, as well as general classes of topological spaces which cannot be derived from semigroup structures via Green’s left quasiorder.</p>}, number={2}, journal={Applied General Topology}, author={Richmond, Bettina}, year={2008}, month={Oct.}, pages={143–168} }
