Mullen, Alain Poli Henning Stichtenoth ... We consider the rank polynomial of a matroid and some well-known applications to graphs and linear codes. ... Various problems involving S can be solved in terms of the matroid without reference to other properties of S. We are mainly interested in those problems thatanbsp;...
