Whitney Duals of Geometric Lattices
Given a graded partially ordered set P, let
Wk(P) denote its Whitney
numbers of the first and second kind respectively. We call a graded partially ordered set Q a Whitney Dual of
for all k. In this extended abstract, we
show that every geometric lattice has a Whitney dual. This is done constructively, using
edge labelings and quotient posets.
