Consider the family of numerical monoids S_n = <n, n + r_1, ..., n + r_k > obtained by varying n. In this talk, we exhibit periodic behavior of the minimal presentations of S_n when n is sufficiently large. As a consequence, we obtain eventual periodicity results for several arithmetic quantities arising in factorization theory.
