Combinatorics II (MAD 4204) — Spring 2011 Due Wednesday 3/2/2011 Homework #5 Note: The due date for this homework is also the date of Midterm #2. A linear extension of the poset P = ( X, ) is a linear order L on X such that x y (in P ) implies that x L y (in the linear extension). A set L of linear extensions of P realizes P if x y (in P ) if and only if x L y for every linear extension L ∈ L
