We consider left cancellative monoids M that are generated by their atoms S, and such that if a subset of S admits a common right multiple, then it actually admits a least common multiple.
In all this work, we consider monoids M with a finite generating set S satisfying the following properties: M is atomic, left-cancellative (if a, u, v [member of] M are such that au = av, then u = v) and verifies that if a subset of S has a right common multiple, then it has a least right common multiple.
Higher level strategies are developed by using objects to obscure part of the picture and by examining common multiples and factors.
