### 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 ...

### The lattice of covectors of an oriented matroid

Let $M$ be an oriented matroid on the ground set $E$, and let $L(M)$ be its ranked poset of covectors. By definition, $L(M)$ is a sub-poset of the poset $\{0, \pm 1\}^E$, ordered by putting $0 < ...

### Circuits in a linear oriented matroid

Given $E$ a finite subset of a real vector space $V$, a circuit of the associated matroid is a minimal linearly dependent subset of $E$. For each circuit $\underline C$, a minimal linear dependence

### Functionals on oriented matroids

Oriented matroids are abstractions of hyperplane arrangements, or equivalently vector configurations. Let me recall the definition in terms of covectors.
Let $R=\lbrace 0,+,-\rbrace$ with the monoid ...

### Realizability of extensions of a free oriented matroid by an independent set

Question:
I am searching for a non-realizable matroid with few dependencies relative to the number of points. Precisely, I would like to find a non-realizable (over $\mathbb{R}$) oriented matroid $M$ ...

### Triangulations of polytopes and tilings of zonotopes

Consider a set $A = \{ a_1,a_2,\ldots, a_n \} $ of vectors in $\mathbb{R}^d$, which lie in a common affine hyperplane. Two convex polytopes may be obtained from $A$, namely the convex hull of the ...
