### How to check whether a positive integer can be written as linear combination of given others, where all coefficients are positive?

Let $n$, $k$ and $m_1, \dots, m_k$ be positive integers. Which is the most efficient
algorithm to find out whether there are positive integers $a_1, \dots, a_k$ such that
$n = \sum_{i=1}^k a_i m_i$?

### Must a ring which admits a Euclidean quadratic form be Euclidean?

The question is in the title, but employs some private terminology, so I had better explain.
Let $R$ be an integral domain with fraction field $K$, and write $R^{\bullet}$ for $R \setminus \{0\}$. ...

### Why do we care whether a PID admits some crazy Euclidean norm?

An integral domain $R$ is said to be Euclidean if it admits some Euclidean norm: i.e., a function $N: R \rightarrow \mathbb{N} = \mathbb{Z}^{\geq 0}$ such that: for all $x, y \in R$ with $N(y) > ...
