(p.489) 13 Seymour's Decomposition Theorem
Matroid Theory

James Oxley

Oxford University Press

The excluded-minor theorem provides one characterization of the class of regular matroids. This chapter presents a different characterization of this class: a decomposition theorem for members of the class, which was proved by Seymour. This theorem has a number of important consequences, one of which is that it leads to a polynomial-time algorithm to test whether a given real matrix is totally unimodular.

Keywords:   regular matroids, excluded-minor theorem, decomposition theorem, polynomial-time algorithm, real matrix, unimodular
