Inverse monoids associated with the complexity class NP

We study the P versus NP problem through properties of functions and monoids, continuing the work of . Here we consider inverse monoids whose properties and relationships determine whether P is different from NP, or whether injective one-way functions (with respect to worst-case complexity) exist.
