Tutte-martin polynomials and orienting vectors of isotropic systems

Isotropic systems are structures which unify some properties of 4-regular graphs and of pairs of dual binary matroids. In this paper we unify the properties of the symmetric Tutte polynomials (i.e. with equal variables) of binary matroids and of the Martin polynomials of 4-regular graphs. For this purpose we introduce the orienting vectors of an isotropic system in order to generalize the eulerian orientations of 4-regular graphs.
