Paper: First-Order Definable Retraction Problems for Posets and Reflexive Graphs (at LICS 2004)

Authors: Víctor Dalmau Andrei A. Krokhin Benoit Larose

Abstract

A retraction from a structure P to its substructure Q is a homomorphism from P onto Q that is the identity on Q. We present an algebraic condition which completely characterises all posets and all reflexive graphs Q with the following property: the class of all posets or reflexive graphs, respectively, that admit a retraction onto Q is first-order definable.
