Retractions onto series-parallel posets.

Dalmau, V. and Krokhin, A. and Larose, B. (2008) 'Retractions onto series-parallel posets.', Discrete mathematics., 308 (11). pp. 2104-2114.


The poset retraction problem for a poset P is whether a given poset Q containing P as a subposet admits a retraction onto P, that is, whether there is a homomorphism from Q onto P which fixes every element of P. We study this problem for finite series-parallel posets P. We present equivalent combinatorial, algebraic, and topological charaterisations of posets for which the problem is tractable, and, for such a poset P, we describe posets admitting a retraction onto P.
