Pfaffian forms and Δ-matroids

Walter Wenzel
1993 Discrete Mathematics  
This suggests a definition of orientable and valuated d-matroids or, more generally, of d-matroids with coefficients which is analogous to the corresponding concept studied in matroid theory.  ...  ., Pfaffian forms and d-matroids, Discrete Mathematics 115 (1993) 253-266.  ...  Acknowledgement The idea to connect the theory of matroids with coefficients with the theories of representable A-matroids and of (W, P)-matroids was kindly suggested to me by Andreas Dress who also had  ...

Pfaffian forms and Δ-matroids with coefficients

Walter Wenzel
1996 Discrete Mathematics  
Particular examples are A-matroids representable by some skew-symmetric matrix with coefficients in a field, oriented A-matroids, and valuated A-matroids.  ...  In this paper I begin to build up a theory of A-matroids with coefficients parallel to the theory of matroids with coefficients.  ...  Finally, as suggested by results concerning (valuated) matroids and (affine) buildings associated with linear geometries, relations between valuated (W;P)matroids and affine buildings for several W and  ...

On Circuit Valuation of Matroids

Kazuo Murota, Akihisa Tamura
2001 Advances in Applied Mathematics  
The concept of valuated matroids was introduced by Dress and Wenzel as a quantitative extension of the base exchange axiom for matroids.  ...  Minty's characterization for matroids by the painting property is generalized for valuated matroids.  ...  For any oriented matroid, the underlying matroid is obtained by ignoring signs. Conversely, a matroid is said to be orientable if there exists an oriented matroid associated in this way.  ...

Pushing this further, by retaining a 2, 4, or 8-tuple of bits or trits, one obtains complex, quarternionic, and octonionic matroids or oriented matroids.  ...  Similarly, a theory of octonionic matroids would uncover the precise role played by associativity in linear algebra or, equivalently, Desargues' theorem in geometry.  ...  The paper of Terhalle [9] , studies the role played by a valuated matroid in "realizing" trees.  ...
