Accessing the collection through the web interface

The collection can be accessed through the publicly available ArangoDB web interface:

credentials
server https://matroid.mathematik.uni-siegen.de/
username matroid
password matroid
database MatroidsDB
collection matroids_split_public

Logging into the webinterface

Choosing the database MatroidsDB

Inside the database MatroidsDB

Choosing the collection matroids_split_public

Accessing the collection through GAP

The package can also be used to access the collection directly.

  1. First start gap and make sure you can

  • AutomorphismGroupSize
  • AutomorphismGroupSizeFactors
  • CharacteristicSet
  • CoordinateRingOfModuliSpace

  • DressWenzelCondition
  • InequalitiesOfModuliSpace
  • IsBalanced
  • IsCharPolyIntegrallySplitting
  • IsDivisionallyFree
  • IsEssentiallyUniquelyRepresentableOverZ
  • IsFactored
  • IsInductivelyFree
  • IsRepresentable
  • IsSimplicial

Verifying Terao's freeness conjecture for rank 3 matroids with 14 atoms

The first intended use case is to verify Terao's freeness conjecture for rank 3 matroids with 14 atoms. This can be either done by a query in the web interface or in GAP.

For details see our paper "On the generation of rank 3 simple matroids with an application to Terao's freeness conjecture".

in the web interface using filters

After choosing the collection COLLECTION > matroids_split_public press filter button and enter the following filter values (which will be combined with the AND connective)

Rank == 3
NumberOfAtoms == 14
IsRepresentable == true
IsInductivelyFree == false
IsStronglyBalanced == true
IsUniquelyRepresentableOverZ == false

and then press ENTER. The result will be No documents.

in the web interface using a query

There should be a predefined query QUERIES > Queries > Check_Terao_14 which upon execution returns an empty list. Here is its content, also in case it was accidentally deleted or modified by another user:

FOR d IN matroids_split_public
  FILTER d.Rank == 3 &&
         d.NumberOfAtoms == 14 &&
         d.IsRepresentable == true &&
         d.IsInductivelyFree == false &&
         d.IsStronglyBalanced == true &&
         d.IsUniquelyRepresentableOverZ == false
  SORT d.NumberOfAtoms, d.Characteristic, d.DimensionOverZ DESC
  RETURN { NumberOfAtoms : d.NumberOfAtoms,
           Characteristic: d.Characteristic,
           DimensionOverZ : d.DimensionOverZ,
           CoordinateRingOfModuliSpace : d.CoordinateRingOfModuliSpace,
           InequalitiesOfModuliSpace: d.InequalitiesOfModuliSpace,
           Exponents: d.Exponents,
           MultiplicityVector : d.MultiplicityVector,
