# On some algorithmic aspects of hypergraphic matroids

## Abstract

Hypergraphic matroids were studied first by Lorea [23] and later by Frank et al. [11]. They can be seen as generalizations of graphic matroids. Here we show that several algorithms developed for the graphic case can be extended to hypergraphic matroids. We treat the following: the separation problem for the associated polytope, testing independence, separation of partition inequalities, computing the rank of a set, computing the strength, computing the arboricity and network reinforcement.
