8 Numerical semigroups with maximal embedding dimension

8.1 Numerical semigroups with maximal embedding dimension

If S is a numerical semigroup and m is its multiplicity (the least positive integer belonging to it), then the embedding dimension e of S (the cardinality of the minimal system of generators of S) is less than or equal to m. We say that S has maximal embedding dimension (MED for short) when e=m. The intersection of two numerical semigroups with the same multiplicity and maximal embedding dimension is again of maximal embedding dimension. Thus we define the MED closure of a non-empty subset of positive integers M={m < m_1 < ⋯ < m_n <⋯} with gcd(M)=1 as the intersection of all MED numerical semigroups with multiplicity m.

Given a MED numerical semigroup S, we say that M={m_1 < ⋯< m_k} is a MED system of generators if the MED closure of M is S. Moreover, M is a minimal MED generating system for S provided that every proper subset of M is not a MED system of generators of S. Minimal MED generating systems are unique, and in general are smaller that the classical minimal generating systems (see [RGGB03]).

8.2 Numerical semigroups with the Arf property and Arf closures

Numerical semigroups with the Arf property are a special kind of numerical semigroups with maximal embedding dimension. A numerical semigroup S is Arf if for every x,y,z in S with x≥ y≥ z, one has that x+y-z∈ S.

The intersection of two Arf numerical semigroups is again Arf, and thus we can consider the Arf closure of a set of nonnegative integers with greatest common divisor equal to one. Analogously as with MED numerical semigroups, we define Arf systems of generators and minimal Arf generating system for an Arf numerical semigroup. These are also unique(see [RGGB04]).

8.3 Saturated numerical semigroups

Saturated numerical semigroups with the Arf property are a special kind of numerical semigroups with maximal embedding dimension. A numerical semigroup S is saturated if the following condition holds: s, s_1 , ... , s_r in S are such that s_i ≤ s for all i in {1, ... , r} and z_1 , ... , z_r in Z are such that z_1 s_1 + ⋯ + z_r s_r≥ 0, then s + z_1 s_1 + ⋯ + z_r s_r in S.

The intersection of two saturated numerical semigroups is again saturated, and thus we can consider the saturated closure of a set of nonnegative integers with greatest common divisor equal to one (see [RG09]).
