This chapter is an introduction to the theory of hyperplane arrangements, which appear in our treatment as the hyperplanes associated to the list of linear equations given by a list X of vectors. We discuss several associated notions, including matroids, Tutte polynomials, and zonotopes. Finally, we expand the example of root systems and compute in this case all the Tutte polynomials.
