Parity structures and generating function from Boolean rings

Parity structures and generating function from Boolean rings

David Petrie Moulton and William A. Stein




Let S be a finite set and T be a subset of the power set of S. Call T a parity structure for S if, for each subset b of S of odd size, the number of subsets of b that lie in T is even. We classify parity structures using generating functions from a free boolean ring. We also show that if T is a parity structure, then, for each subset b of S of even size, the number of subsets of b of odd size that lie in T is even. We then give several other properties of parity structures and discuss a generalization.
