h-vector Inequalities Under Weak Maps

Alex Mason, University of Washington
Wednesday, May 8, 2024 - 4:10pm to 5:00pm
PDL C-401 and via Zoom Link:


We study the behavior of \$h\$-vectors associated to matroid complexes under weak maps, or inclusions of matroid polytopes. Specifically, we show that the \$h\$-vector of the order complex of the lattice of flats of a matroid is component-wise non-increasing under a weak map. This result extends to the flag \$h\$-vector. We note that the analogous result also holds for independence complexes and rank-preserving weak maps.

Note:  The main talk starts at 4:10. There will be no pre-seminar.
