of S such that
r(X) < |X|, but r(Y)=|Y|, for
every subset Y of X.
A C-matroid M=(S,C)
is a finite set S and a collection of
subsets C of S such that the
following two conditions are satisfied.
(C1) if X and Y are in C and
X is a subset of Y, then
then X=Y; and
(C2) if X and Y are distinct elements of C
and z is an element of X intersect Y,
then there exists an element Z in C
such that z is not in Z and Z is a
X union Y.
