Abstract: In a previous paper, we associated a topological space with each left ideal of a semigroup. Here, we determine this space when the semigroup under consideration is the semigroup of all continuous selfmaps of any space belonging to a fairly extensive class of topological spaces and the left ideal is taken to be the kernel of the semigroup.
