A note on blockers in posets [article]

Anders Björner, Axel Hultman
2004 arXiv   pre-print
The posets P for which A^**=A for all antichains are characterized. 2. The blocker A^* of a symmetric antichain in the partition lattice is characterized. 3.  ...  The blocker A^* of an antichain A in a finite poset P is the set of elements minimal with the property of having with each member of A a common predecessor. The following is done: 1.  ...  Symmetric blockers in partition lattices Recall that the partition lattice Π n consists of all set partitions of [n] = {1, . . . , n} ordered by refinement.  ...

Partitioning Boolean lattices into antichains

Muktar Elzobi, Zbigniew Lonc
2003 Discrete Mathematics  
Let f(n) be the smallest integer t such that a poset obtained from a Boolean lattice with n atoms by deleting both the largest and the smallest elements can be partitioned into t antichains of the same  ...  In this paper, it is shown that f(n) 6 b n 2 =log n. This is an improvement of the best previously known upper bound for f(n).  ...  In this article, we consider a variation of a dual problem, i.e. the problem of partitioning of a Boolean lattice into antichains of equal size.  ...

Partitions of large Boolean lattices

Zbigniew Lonc
1994 Discrete Mathematics  
Definef(n) to be the minimum number k such that there is a partition of 2" into k antichains of the same size except for at most one antichain of a smaller size.  ...  In the paper we examine the asymptotic behavior of f(n) and we show that c1 n < f(n) < c2n2 for some constants c1 and c2 and n sufficiently large.  ...  In this paper we deal with a variation of the dual problem: (Q) Can, for n sufficiently large given m, the ordered set 2" be partitioned into antichains of size m except for at most m-1 elements which  ...

A splitting property of maximal antichains

Rudolf Ahlswede, Péter L. Erdős, Niall Graham
1995 Combinatorica  
In any dense poset P (e.g. in the Boolean lattice) every maximal antichain S may be partitioned into disjoint subsets S 1 and S 2 , such that the union of the downset of S 1 with the upset of S 2 yields  ...  To find a similar splitting of maximal antichains in posets is NP-hard in general.  ...  For convenience, we sometimes say that the antichain S is partitionable when S satisfies the splitting property in the poset P.  ...

The Size of the Largest Antichain in the Partition Lattice

E.Rodney Canfield
1998 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series A  
Consider the poset n of partitions of an n-element set, ordered by re nement. The sizes of the various ranks within this poset are the Stirling numbers of the second kind.

4-Connected Triangulations on Few Lines [article]

Stefan Felsner
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The same holds for all subgraphs of such triangulations. The proof is based on a corresponding result for diagrams of planar lattices which makes use of orthogonal chain and antichain families.  ...  We show that 4-connected plane triangulations can be redrawn such that edges are represented by straight segments and the vertices are covered by a set of at most √(2n) lines each of them horizontal or  ...  Work on this problem began at the 2018 Bertinoro Workshop of Graph Drawing.

In 1928, Sperner determined the maximum-sized antichains in the subset lattice.  ...  Concerning the Sperner property for special posets, Anderson outlines Shearer's proof of Canfield's result that for large n the lattice of partitions of an n-set is not Sperner, contrary to a conjecture  ...

Minimum sized fibres in distributive lattices

2001 Journal of the Australian Mathematical Society  
We find a lower bound on the function / (£>), the minimum fibre size in the distributive lattice D, in terms of the size of D.  ...  This fact depends upon being able to split every maximal antichain of this class of distributive lattices into two parts so that the lattice is the union of the upset of one part and the downset of the  ...  To prove Theorem 1, we play off the dimension of a distributive lattice against its length and invoke a description of partitions induced by maximal antichains in a certain class of distributive lattices  ...

Enumeration of extensions of the cycle matroid of a complete graph [article]

Peter Nelson, Shayla Redlin, Jorn van der Pol
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We prove that the number of single element extensions of M(K_n+1) is 2^n n/2(1+o(1)). This is done using a characterization of extensions as "linear subclasses".  ...  Since ⌊ n 2 ⌋ + 1 = ⌈ n+1 2 ⌉, the result follows. Antichains in the Boolean lattice are well studied and each intersecting antichain is also an antichain.  ...  The Boolean lattice is used as the auxiliary graph in this paper, so known results about enumerating antichains in a Boolean lattice are used instead of a direct application of the container method.  ...

1987 Discrete Mathematics
