### Matroid Representation of the Antichains of a Poset

Introduction I am studying a problem in which the antichains of a poset are of key importance. They are naturally geometrically embedded as vectors in the space $\mathbb{R}^P$, where $P$ is the poset,...

### Will the following construction leads to an counterexample of strong mapping conjecture on realizable oriented matroids?

The strong map conjecture asserts that any strong map $\mathcal{M}_1\rightarrow\mathcal{M}_2$ admit a factorization into an extension followed by a contraction. For which the counterexample has been ...

### Is every planar point set be projections of vertices of a neighborly 4-polytope?

More exactly, written in coordinates, I'm curious to know if for every point set $(x_i,y_i)$ there are $(x_i,y_i,z_i,w_i)$ be vertices of a neighborly polytope. This problem comes from a simple ...

### The Universality Theorem by Mnev for uniform oriented matroids of rank 4 and higher

According to the Universality Theorem by Mnev (see below theorem 8.6.6 from [1]), for any open semialgebraic variety V there is a uniform oriented matroid of rank 3 whose realization space is stably ...

### What are / could be the applications of Delaunay oriented matroids?

The Delaunay oriented matroid is studied in detail by F. Santos (actually this paper is more general). For a set of points $S$ (in any dimension), let $C$ be a sphere, $C^+$ be its interior, $C^-$ be ...
