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.
