Publication# Almost tiling of the Boolean lattice with copies of a poset

Abstract

Let P be a partially ordered set. If the Boolean lattice (2[n],⊂) can be partitioned into copies of P for some positive integer n, then P must satisfy the following two trivial conditions: (1) the size of P is a power of 2, (2) P has a unique maximal and minimal element. Resolving a conjecture of Lonc, it was shown by Gruslys, Leader and Tomon that these conditions are sufficient as well. In this paper, we show that if P only satisfies condition (2), we can still almost partition 2[n] into copies of P. We prove that if P has a unique maximal and minimal element, then there exists a constant c=c(P) such that all but at most c elements of 2[n] can be covered by disjoint copies of P.

Partially ordered set

In mathematics, especially order theory, a partial order on a set is an arrangement such that, for certain pairs of elements, one precedes the other. The word partial is used to indicate that not every pair of elements needs to be comparable; that is, there may be pairs for which neither element precedes the other. Partial orders thus generalize total orders, in which every pair is comparable. Formally, a partial order is a homogeneous binary relation that is reflexive, transitive and antisymmetric.

Maximal and minimal elements

In mathematics, especially in order theory, a maximal element of a subset S of some preordered set is an element of S that is not smaller than any other element in S. A minimal element of a subset S of some preordered set is defined dually as an element of S that is not greater than any other element in S. The notions of maximal and minimal elements are weaker than those of greatest element and least element which are also known, respectively, as maximum and minimum.

Partition (number theory)

In number theory and combinatorics, a partition of a non-negative integer n, also called an integer partition, is a way of writing n as a sum of positive integers. Two sums that differ only in the order of their summands are considered the same partition. (If order matters, the sum becomes a composition.) For example, 4 can be partitioned in five distinct ways: 4 3 + 1 2 + 2 2 + 1 + 1 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 The only partition of zero is the empty sum, having no parts.

By juxtaposing ideas from fractal geometry and dynamical systems, Furstenberg proposed a series of conjectures in the late 1960's that explore the relationship between digit expansions with respect to multiplicatively independent bases. In this work, we in ...

We examine the moments of the number of lattice points in a fixed ball of volume $V$ for lattices in Euclidean space which are modules over the ring of integers of a number field $K$. In particular, denoting by $ω_K$ the number of roots of unity in $K$, we ...

Let K be a totally real number field of degree n >= 2. The inverse different of K gives rise to a lattice in Rn. We prove that the space of Schwartz Fourier eigenfunctions on R-n which vanish on the "component-wise square root" of this lattice, is infinite ...
