Example text

Of Type I, II, or III. 9 Multiplicities 45 For such S we have |S| = q or |S| = q + 1. 3 that in all further considerations of T -relevant endomorphisms we may assume that the degenerations are of Types II and III. 4. Let T be a set of cardinality q + 1. If Ti , Tj ∈ Dep(T ) for i = j, then Ti ∈ Dep(T ) for all i, 1 ≤ i ≤ q + 1. Proof. Without loss, assume that T1 , T2 ∈ Dep(T ). Then there are nonzero vectors α = (0, α2 , α3 , . . , αq+1 ) and β = (β1 , 0, β3 , . . 11) indexed by T1 and T2 , respectively.

Hiq } ∈ nbc. We show first that ν ◦ ξ(S) = S. Suppose ξ(S) = (X1 > · · · > Xq ). Then Hip ⊇ Xp . If min AXp ≺ Hip , then {min AXp , Hip , . . , Hiq } is dependent and must contain a circuit. It follows that {Hip , . . , Hiq } contains a broken circuit. This contradicts S ∈ nbc. Therefore min AXp = Hip for 1 ≤ p ≤ q. This implies that ν(ξ(S)) = S, so the map ξ : nbc −→ ξ(nbc) is bijective and ν ◦ ξ : nbc −→ nbc is the identity map. Thus these maps are inverses of each other. 3. We have ξ(nbc) = {(X1 > · · · > Xq ) | ν(X1 ) ≺ ν(X2 ) ≺ · · · ≺ ν(Xq ), r(Xp ) = q − p + 1 (1 ≤ p ≤ q)}.

If Ti , Tj ∈ Dep(T ) for i = j, then Ti ∈ Dep(T ) for all i, 1 ≤ i ≤ q + 1. Proof. Without loss, assume that T1 , T2 ∈ Dep(T ). Then there are nonzero vectors α = (0, α2 , α3 , . . , αq+1 ) and β = (β1 , 0, β3 , . . 11) indexed by T1 and T2 , respectively. If αi = 0 for some i = 1, 2, then α is annihilated by the rows corresponding to Ti , hence Ti ∈ Dep(T ). If αi = 0, then αi β − βi α is a nonzero vector annihilated by the rows corresponding to Ti , hence Ti ∈ Dep(T ). 5. Let T ∈ Dep(T )q+1 be a circuit.
