Computing the number of Numerical Monoid of a Given Genus

This is a very optimized implementation of algorithm described in

Jean Fromentin and Florent Hivert. 2016. Exploring the tree of numerical semi- groups. Math. Comput. 85, 301 (2016), 2553–2568. DOI:https://doi.org/10.1090/mcom/3075

The more up to date code is in directory src/Cilk++/ together with a Sagemath binding.

Description of the problem

A numerical semigroup is a subset of the set of natural number which

  • contains 0
  • is stable under addition
  • has a finite complement

The elements of the complement are called gaps. The number of gaps is called the genus.

The goal is to compute the number n(g) of semigroups of a given genus.

A few conjectures:

  • Bras-amoros 2008 : n(g) >= n(g-1) + n(g-2). Still widely open.
  • Zhai 2013 n(g) >= n(g-1) asymptotically true, but open for small g.

See http://images.math.cnrs.fr/Semigroupes-numeriques-et-nombre-d-or-II.html (in French) for more explanation.

We also validated Wilf conjecture upto n=60 and invalidated some stronger statements (See Near-misses in Wilf's conjecture, Shalom Eliahou, Jean Fromentin https://arxiv.org/abs/1710.03623v1).
