The Frobenius number of a family of numerical semigroups with embedding dimension 5

Kurt Herzinger, Emelia McLaughlin and Julie Trimber

Vol. 16 (2023), No. 5, 833–847
Abstract

We answer the Frobenius problem for a specific family of numerical semigroups with embedding dimension 5. The numerical semigroups in this family are called fulcrum numerical semigroups and are related to balanced and unitary numerical semigroups introduced in earlier research. We show that fulcrum numerical semigroups come in two distinct varieties and provide formulas for the Frobenius number and genus for both.
