330. David M. Evans
Matroid Theory and Hrushovski's Predimension Construction
E-mail:

Submission date: 20 May 2011

Abstract:

We give an exposition of some results from matroid theory which characterise the finite pregeometries arising from Hrushovski's predimension construction. As a corollary, we observe that a finite pregeometry which satisfies Hrushovski's flatness condition arises from a predimension.
