On a problem of Frobenius. (English) Zbl 0108.04604
If \(a_1, \dots, a_k\) are positive integers denote by \(f(a_1, \dots, a_k)\) the greatest integer which is not of the shape \(x_1a_1+\dots+x_ka_k\) with positive integral \(x_1, \dots, x_k\). The authors give a procedure to compute \(f\) for \(k=3\). They also give a history of the problem.
