For a minimal group (or monoid) presentation <a onClick="popup('http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2013/1/51/mathml/M1','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2013/1/51/mathml/M1">View MathML</a>, let us suppose that <a onClick="popup('http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2013/1/51/mathml/M1','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2013/1/51/mathml/M1">View MathML</a> satisfies the algebraic property of either being efficient or inefficient. Then one can investigate whether some generating functions can be applied to it and study what kind of new properties can be obtained by considering special generating functions. To establish that, we will use the presentations of infinite group and monoid examples, namely the split extensions <a onClick="popup('http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2013/1/51/mathml/M3','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2013/1/51/mathml/M3">View MathML</a> and <a onClick="popup('http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2013/1/51/mathml/M4','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2013/1/51/mathml/M4">View MathML</a>, respectively. This study will give an opportunity to make a new classification of infinite groups and monoids by using generating functions.
