On the Excluded Minors for Dyadic Matroids
MetadataShow full item record
The study of the class of dyadic matroids, the matroids representable over both $GF(3)$ and $GF(5)$, is a natural step to finding the excluded minors for $GF(5)$-representability. In this thesis we characterize the ternary matroids $M$ that are excluded minors for dyadic matroids and contains a 3-separation. We will show that one side of the separation has size at most four, and that $M$ is obtained by adding at most four elements to another excluded minor $M'$. This reduces the problem of finding the excluded minors for dyadic matroids to the problem of finding the vertically 4-connected excluded minors for dyadic matroids.
