g-Elements of matroid complexes

  title={g-Elements of matroid complexes},

A g-element for a graded R-module is a one-form with properties similar to a Lefschetz class in the cohomology ring of a compact complex projective manifold, except that the induced multiplication maps are injections instead of bijections. We show that if k(∆) is the face ring of the independence complex of a matroid and the characteristic of k is zero, then there is a non-empty Zariski open subset of pairs (Θ, ω) such that Θ is a linear set of paramenters for k(∆) and ω is a g-element for k… CONTINUE READING
