### Strongly minimal covers

Let $H=(V,E)$ be a hypergraph, that is $V$ is a set and $E\subseteq \mathcal{P}(V)$. We say that $C\subseteq E$ is a cover of $H$ if $\bigcup C = V$.
A cover $M\subseteq E$ is said to be strongly ...

### Maximal expansions of strongly minimal covers of hypergraphs

Let $H = (V,E)$ be a hypergraph, that is $V$ is a set and $E \subseteq {\cal P}(V)$. We assume $\bigcup E = V$. Moreover we assume that every $e\in E$ is contained in some maximal member $e'\in E$ ...
