Let GG be a topological group. In this paper limit behavior in the Stone–Čech compactification βG\beta G is studied. It depends on a family of translates of a reversible subsemigroup SS. The notion of semitotal subsemigroup is introduced. It is shown that the semitotality property is equivalent to the existence of only two maximal chain transitive sets in % \beta G whenever SS is centric. This result links an algebraic property to a dynamical property. The concept of a chain recurrent function is also introduced and characterized via the compactification βG\beta G. Applications of chain recurrent function to linear differential systems and transformation groups are done.
