This book presents the state of the art on numerical semigroups and related subjects, offering different perspectives on research in the field and including results and examples that are very difficult to find in a structured exposition elsewhere. The contents comprise the proceedings of the 2018 INdAM “International Meeting on Numerical Semigroups”, held in Cortona, Italy. Talks at the meeting centered not only on traditional types of numerical semigroups, such as Arf or symmetric, and their usual properties, but also on related types of semigroups, such as affine, Puiseux, Weierstrass, and primary, and their applications in other branches of algebra, including semigroup rings, coding theory, star operations, and Hilbert functions. The papers in the book reflect the variety of the talks and derive from research areas including Semigroup Theory, Factorization Theory, Algebraic Geometry, Combinatorics, Commutative Algebra, Coding Theory, and Number Theory. The book is intended for researchers and students who want to learn about recent developments in the theory of numerical semigroups and its connections with other research fields.
