Algebraic and geometric representation of matroids

  • András Recski
Part of the Algorithms and Combinatorics book series (AC, volume 6)


One of our first examples at the introduction of matroids was the following. Let T be an arbitrary field, V[T] be a vector space over T and S be a set of vectors from this vector space. This set leads to a matroid M = (S, F) as follows: XS is independent (denoted by XF) if and only if the vectors, belonging to X are linearly independent over T.
