A numerical semigroup is a submonoid of Z≥0 whose complement
in Z≥0 is finite. The gap set G(S) of a numerical semigroup
S is the finite set Z≥0 \ S. A positive integer n
is in the set FG(S) of fundamental gaps of S provided n
∉ S but kn ∈ S
for each k ∈ Z, k > 1. We explore
the set FG(S) mostly when S is generated by two or three
integers, but also in some other special cases, including when S
is generated by arithmetic progressions.
