Attila Joó gave a talk on the partition of a set into bases of finitary matroids and cofinitary matroids at the discrete math seminar

On December 19, 2019, Attila Joó from University of Hamburg presented a talk on the partitioning of the ground set into bases of finitary and cofinitary matroids at the discrete math seminar. The title of his talk was “Base partition for finitary-cofinitary matroid families”.

Attila Joó, Base partition for finitary-cofinitary matroid families

Let ${\mathcal{M} = (M_i \colon i\in K)}$ be a finite or infinite family consisting of finitary and cofinitary matroids on a common ground set $E$.

We prove the following Cantor-Bernstein-type result: if $E$ can be covered by sets ${(B_i \colon i\in K)}$ which are bases in the corresponding matroids and there are also pairwise disjoint bases of the matroids $M_i$ then $E$ can be partitioned into bases with respect to $\mathcal{M}$.
