Abstract: An approach to groups and semigroups stemming from the structure theory of set addition turns out to have much in common with the so-called permutation or rewritable properties. We explain these connections and show how these properties take their place in a wider class of interesting and naturally arising problems. As an example, we characterize some classes of groups and group elements.
