The monoid Fn of uniform block bijections is the factorizable inverse monoid
which arises from the natural action of the symmetric group on the join
semilattice of equivalences on an n-set; it has been described in the literature as the factorizable part of the dual symmetric inverse monoid. The
present paper gives and proves correct a monoid presentation for Fn: The
methods involved make use of a general criterion for a monoid generated by
a group and an idempotent to be inverse, the structure of factorizable inverse
monoids, and presentations of the symmetric group and the join semilattice
of equivalences on an n-set.
