**1961**, Alfred Hoblitzelle Clifford, G. B. Preston,*The Algebraic Theory of Semigroups*(page 70)- If a semigroup
*S*contains a**zeroid**, then every left zeroid is also a right zeroid, and vice versa, and the set*K*of all the zeroids of*S*is the kernel of*S*.

**1993**, Keith Walker,*Surveys in combinatorics, 1993*(page 166)- Simplex
