AMS Special Session: Numerical Semigroups and Applications (CANCELLED, COVID-19)
A numerical semigroup is a nonempty subset of the non-negative integers that is closed under addition and whose complement is finite. The simplicity of this concept makes it possible to state problems that are easy to understand but whose resolution is far from trivial, a fact that attracted several renowed mathematicians from the end of the nineteenth century through today. A famous toy example is the Coin Exchange Problem: what is the largest monetary amount that cannot be obtained using only coins of specified denominations?

The aim of this session is to gather researchers who work on numerical semigroups from a classic point of view, and mix them with others who focus on the many facets of applications of numerical semigroups in other areas of mathematics. We will also include advanced undergraduate (REU-related) and graduate students in our session.
