### Efficiently computing minimal elements over partially ordered sets

I have a list of sets that I would like to sort into a partial order based on the subset relation. In fact, I do not require the complete ordering, only the minimal elements. If I am not mistaken, ...

### Computing minimum partition of poset of $N$ intervals into chains in $o(N^{2.5})$ time?

Consider a set $P$ of $N$ intervals $\{I_i = (l_i, r_i)\}$ partially ordered according the standard interval order: $I_i < I_j$ iff $r_i \le l_j$. I want to find a minimum cardinality partition of ...

### Construct neighbourhood relation graph for n sequences

Given $n$ sequences with length $m$, $s_i=\langle c_1^ic_2^i\dots c_m^i\rangle, i = 1,\dots, n$, where $c^i_j\in D$ is a partial ordered set and the partial order relation $\sqsubseteq$ on $D$ answers ...

### Poset data structure to find least element, greater or equal to given

Let $A$ be a finite set, and $S \subset \mathcal{P}(A)$. Is there a data structure for $S$ that would allow to quickly retrieve an element $q \in S$, given a key $p \in \mathcal{P}(A)$, such that $q$ ...

### Does every Partially Ordered relation and its dual have the same number of topological orderings?

Given the Hasse Diagram of a Partially Ordered Relation, is it the case that both the POSET itself and its dual POSET have the same number of topological orderings? I have tried a few examples, and ...

### Is this algorithm for partial ordering of sets complete and sound?

I need to build a partial order tree of sets for analysis. Where the order is defined as A <= B <=> for all x in A, y in B, x <= y. I realized that if ...

### effective, efficient algorithms on antichains

In a partially ordered set L, an antichain is a subset A of L such that no two elements of A are comparable. Antichains are commonly used to represent upward-closed subsets of L, that is, sets S such ...

### How to convert a dependency graph to series-parallel representation?

I'm given a finite partial order, in the form of a dependency graph between items, and I'd like to have it in series-parallel form (Wikipedia). So formally, given a finite partial order $\le$ on a ...

### Counting number of permutations respecting partial order

Suppose that we have an array $A$ of $n$ elements with some partial order known, e.g. for example as a $n\times n$ matrix containing $c_{ij} \in \{-1, 0, 1\}$ where $0$ represents unknown and $-1, 1$ ...

### Checking if the mimimum is unique

We have a finite poset and its subset $S$. We can enumerate elements of $S$ using an iterator. I need to check if there are more than one minimal elements of $S$ (regarding the above poset). The ...

### Two related partial order relations

We will consider a set whose elements I call "precedences". Precedences are related by two relations: "is subclass of" and "higher than", which are specified by some pairs (given on algorithm input) ...

### Given many partial orders, check them for consistency and report any that are not consistent

Inputs. I am given a finite set $S$ of symbols. I know there should exist some total order $<$ on $S$, but I'm not given this ordering and it could be anything. I am also given a collection of ...
