Constructing numerical semigroups from others

In this section we show how to construct new numerical semigroups from a given numerical semigroup. Two dual operations are presented. The first one removes a minimal generator from a numerical semigroup. The second adds a special gap to a semigroup (see [RGSGGJM03]).

`‣ RemoveMinimalGeneratorFromNumericalSemigroup` ( n, S ) | ( function ) |

`S` is a numerical semigroup and `n` is one if its minimal generators.

The output is the numerical semigroup `S` ∖{`n`} (see [RGSGGJM03]; S∖{n} is a numerical semigroup if and only if n is a minimal generator of S).

gap> s:=NumericalSemigroup(3,5,7); <Numerical semigroup with 3 generators> gap> RemoveMinimalGeneratorFromNumericalSemigroup(7,s); <Numerical semigroup with 3 generators> gap> MinimalGeneratingSystemOfNumericalSemigroup(last); [ 3, 5 ]

`‣ AddSpecialGapOfNumericalSemigroup` ( g, S ) | ( function ) |

`S` is a numerical semigroup and `g` is a special gap of `S`

The output is the numerical semigroup `S` ∪{`g`} (see [RGSGGJM03], where it is explained why this set is a numerical semigroup).

gap> s:=NumericalSemigroup(3,5,7);; gap> s2:=RemoveMinimalGeneratorFromNumericalSemigroup(5,s); <Numerical semigroup with 3 generators> gap> s3:=AddSpecialGapOfNumericalSemigroup(5,s2); <Numerical semigroup> gap> SmallElementsOfNumericalSemigroup(s) = > SmallElementsOfNumericalSemigroup(s3); true gap> s=s3; true

`‣ Intersection` ( S, T ) | ( operation ) |

`‣ IntersectionOfNumericalSemigroups` ( S, T ) | ( function ) |

`S` and `T` are numerical semigroups. Computes the intersection of `S` and `T` (which is a numerical semigroup).

gap> S := NumericalSemigroup("modular", 5,53); <Modular numerical semigroup satisfying 5x mod 53 <= x > gap> T := NumericalSemigroup(2,17); <Numerical semigroup with 2 generators> gap> SmallElements(S); [ 0, 11, 12, 13, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 43 ] gap> SmallElements(T); [ 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 ] gap> IntersectionOfNumericalSemigroups(S,T); <Numerical semigroup> gap> SmallElements(last); [ 0, 12, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 43 ]

`‣ QuotientOfNumericalSemigroup` ( S, n ) | ( function ) |

`‣ \/` ( S, n ) | ( operation ) |

`S` is a numerical semigroup and `n` is an integer. Computes the quotient of `S` by `n`, that is, the set { x∈ N | nx ∈ S}, which is again a numerical semigroup. `S / n`

may be used as a short for `QuotientOfNumericalSemigroup(S, n)`

.

gap> s:=NumericalSemigroup(3,29); <Numerical semigroup with 2 generators> gap> SmallElements(s); [ 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 29, 30, 32, 33, 35, 36, 38, 39, 41, 42, 44, 45, 47, 48, 50, 51, 53, 54, 56 ] gap> t:=QuotientOfNumericalSemigroup(s,7); <Numerical semigroup> gap> SmallElements(t); [ 0, 3, 5, 6, 8 ] gap> u := s / 7; <Numerical semigroup> gap> SmallElements(u); [ 0, 3, 5, 6, 8 ]

`‣ MultipleOfNumericalSemigroup` ( S, a, b ) | ( function ) |

`S` is a numerical semigroup, and `a` and `b` are positive integers. Computes a S∪ {b,b+1,->}. If `b` is smaller than a c, with c the conductor of S, then a warning is displayed.

gap> N:=NumericalSemigroup(1);; gap> s:=MultipleOfNumericalSemigroup(N,4,20);; gap> SmallElements(s); [ 0, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20 ]

`‣ Difference` ( S, T ) | ( operation ) |

`‣ DifferenceOfNumericalSemigroups` ( S, T ) | ( function ) |

`S, T` are numerical semigroups. The output is the set `S`∖ `T`.

gap> ns1 := NumericalSemigroup(5,7);; gap> ns2 := NumericalSemigroup(7,11,12);; gap> Difference(ns1,ns2); [ 5, 10, 15, 17, 20, 27 ] gap> Difference(ns2,ns1); [ 11, 18, 23 ] gap> DifferenceOfNumericalSemigroups(ns2,ns1); [ 11, 18, 23 ]

`‣ NumericalDuplication` ( S, E, b ) | ( function ) |

`S` is a numerical semigroup, and `E` and ideal of `S`, and `b` is a positive odd integer, so that 2S∪ (2E+b) is a numerical semigroup (this extends slightly the original definition where `b` was imposed to be in `S`, [DS13]; now the condition imposed is E+E+b⊆ S). Computes 2S∪ (2E+b).

gap> s:=NumericalSemigroup(3,5,7); <Numerical semigroup with 3 generators> gap> e:=6+s; <Ideal of numerical semigroup> gap> ndup:=NumericalDuplication(s,e,3); <Numerical semigroup with 4 generators> gap> SmallElements(ndup); [ 0, 6, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, 21, 22, 24 ]

`‣ InductiveNumericalSemigroup` ( S, a, b ) | ( function ) |

`S` is a numerical semigroup, and `a` and `b` are lists of positive integers, such that b[i+1]ge a[i]b[i]. Computes inductively S_0= N and S_i+1=a[i]S_i∪ {a[i]b[i],a[i]b[i]+1,->}, and returns S_k, with k the length of `a` and `b`.

gap> s:=InductiveNumericalSemigroup([4,2],[5,23]);; gap> SmallElements(s); [ 0, 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 42, 44, 46 ]

In order to construct the set of numerical semigroups containing a fixed numerical semigroup S, one first constructs its unitary extensions, that is to say, the sets S∪{g} that are numerical semigroups with g a positive integer. This is achieved by constructing the special gaps of the semigroup, and then adding each of them to the numerical semigroup. Then we repeat the process for each of this new numerical semigroups until we reach N.

These procedures are described in [RGSGGJM03].

`‣ OverSemigroupsNumericalSemigroup` ( s ) | ( function ) |

`s` is a numerical semigroup. The output is the set of numerical semigroups containing it.

gap> OverSemigroupsNumericalSemigroup(NumericalSemigroup(3,5,7)); [ <The numerical semigroup N>, <Numerical semigroup with 2 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 3 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 3 generators> ] gap> List(last,s->MinimalGenerators(s)); [ [ 1 ], [ 2, 3 ], [ 3 .. 5 ], [ 3, 5, 7 ] ]

`‣ NumericalSemigroupsWithFrobeniusNumber` ( f ) | ( function ) |

`f` is an non zero integer greater than or equal to -1. The output is the set of numerical semigroups with Frobenius number `f`. The algorithm implemented is given in [RGSGGJM04].

gap> Length(NumericalSemigroupsWithFrobeniusNumber(15)); 200

Given a numerical semigroup of genus g, removing minimal generators, one obtains numerical semigroups of genus g+1. In order to avoid repetitions, we only remove minimal generators greater than the Frobenius number of the numerical semigroup (this is accomplished with the local function sons).

These procedures are described in [RGSGGB03] and [BA08].

`‣ NumericalSemigroupsWithGenus` ( g ) | ( function ) |

`g` is a nonnegative integer. The output is the set of numerical semigroups with genus `g`.

gap> NumericalSemigroupsWithGenus(5); [ <Numerical semigroup with 6 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 5 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 5 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 5 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 5 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 4 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 4 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 4 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 4 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 3 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 3 generators>, <Numerical semigroup with 2 generators> ] gap> List(last,MinimalGenerators); [ [ 6 .. 11 ], [ 5, 7, 8, 9, 11 ], [ 5, 6, 8, 9 ], [ 5, 6, 7, 9 ], [ 5, 6, 7, 8 ], [ 4, 6, 7 ], [ 4, 7, 9, 10 ], [ 4, 6, 9, 11 ], [ 4, 5, 11 ], [ 3, 8, 10 ], [ 3, 7, 11 ], [ 2, 11 ] ]

(3.1-16).

These procedures are described in [DGSRP16].

`‣ ForcedIntegersForPseudoFrobenius` ( PF ) | ( function ) |

`PF` is a list of positive integers (given as a list or individual elements). The output is:

Is just a quicker version of `ForcedIntegersForPseudoFrobenius`

(5.6-1)

`fg` is a list of integers that we require to be gaps of the semigroup; `fe` is a list of integers that we require to be elements of the semigroup; `PF` is a list of positive integers. The output is:

in case there exists a numerical semigroup S such that PF(S)=PF:

a list [forced_gaps,forced_elts] such that:

forced_gaps is contained in N - S for any numerical semigroup S such that PF(S)={g_1,...,g_n}

forced_elts is contained in S for any numerical semigroup S such that PF(S)={g_1,...,g_n}

`‣ NumericalSemigroupsWithPseudoFrobeniusNumbers` ( g ) | ( function ) |

`PF` is a list of positive integers (given as a list or individual elements). The output is: a list of numerical semigroups S such that PF(S)=PF. When Length(PF)=1, it makes use of the function `NumericalSemigroupsWithFrobeniusNumber`

(5.4-1)

`‣ ANumericalSemigroupWithPseudoFrobeniusNumbers` ( g ) | ( function ) |

`PF` is a list of positive integers (given as a list or individual elements). Alternatively, a record with fields "pseudo_frobenius" and "max_attempts" option The output is: A numerical semigroup S such that PF(S)=PF. Returns fail if it concludes that it exists and suggests to use NumericalSemigroupsWithPseudoFrobeniusNumbers if it is not able to conclude...

It makes use of the function `AnIrreducibleNumericalSemigroupWithFrobeniusNumber`

(6.1-4), when Length(PF)=1 or Length(PF)=2 and 2*PF[1] = PF[2].
