Some Remarks on Simple Games and Matroids

  • Dieter Stumpe
Conference paper


Between simple games and matroids there are certain connections. Edmonds showed that the core of a supermodular game (it is a simple game) is a polymatroid. The combinatorial structure of a simple game is not known in general. However for a matroidal simple game we can use cetain combinatorial results.
