Abstract: The conditions for ergodicity of semigroups of epimorphisms of compact groups are studied. In certain cases ergodic semigroups are shown to contain small ergodic subsemigroups. Properties related to ergodicity, such as that of admitting no infinite closed invariant proper subset of the group, are discussed for semigroups of epimorphisms and of affine transformations.
