Title: A note on Matsuda monoids

Abstract: A commutative, torsion-free, cancellative monoid M is called a Matsuda monoid if for every indivisible element $\alpha$ in M, the polynomial $X^{\alpha} - 1$ is irreducible in F[X; M] for any field F, where F[X; M] denotes the ring of all polynomials with coefficients in F and exponents in M. In this talk, we will discuss recent work on Matsuda monoids that leads to questions in analytic number theory.
