Abstract. In this paper we analyze some classes of abstract simplicial complexes relying on algebraic models arising from module theory. To this regard, we consider a left-module on a unitary ring and find models of abstract complexes and related set operators having specific regularity properties, which are strictly interrelated to the algebraic properties of both the module and the ring. Next, taking inspiration from the aforementioned models, we carry out our analysis from modules to arbitrary sets. In such a more general perspective, we start with an abstract simplicial complex and an associated set operator. Endowing such a set operator with the corresponding properties obtained in our module instances, we investigate in detail and prove several properties of three subclasses of abstract complexes. More specifically, we provide uniformity conditions in relation to the cardinality of the maximal members of such classes. By means of the notion of OSS-bijection, we prove a correspondence theorem between a subclass of closure operators and one of the aforementioned families of abstract complexes, which is similar to the classic correspondence theorem between closure operators and Moore systems. Next, we show an extension property of a binary relation induced by set systems when they belong to one of the above families. Finally, we provide a representation result in terms of pairings between sets for one of the three classes of abstract simplicial complexes studied in this work.

Abstract

Abstract. In this paper we analyze some classes of abstract simplicial complexes relying on algebraic models arising from module theory. To this regard, we consider a left-module on a unitary ring and find models of abstract complexes and related set operators having specific regularity properties, which are strictly interrelated to the algebraic properties of both the module and the ring. Next, taking inspiration from the aforementioned models, we carry out our analysis from modules to arbitrary sets. In such a more general perspective, we start with an abstract simplicial complex and an associated set operator. Endowing such a set operator with the corresponding properties obtained in our module instances, we investigate in detail and prove several properties of three subclasses of abstract complexes. More specifically, we provide uniformity conditions in relation to the cardinality of the maximal members of such classes. By means of the notion of OSS-bijection, we prove a correspondence theorem between a subclass of closure operators and one of the aforementioned families of abstract complexes, which is similar to the classic correspondence theorem between closure operators and Moore systems. Next, we show an extension property of a binary relation induced by set systems when they belong to one of the above families. Finally, we provide a representation result in terms of pairings between sets for one of the three classes of abstract simplicial complexes studied in this work.
