In combinatorial optimization, the matroid intersection problem is to find a largest common independent set in two matroids over the same ground set. If the elements of the matroid are assigned real weights, the weighted matroid intersection problem is to find a common independent set with the maximum possible weight. These problems generalize many problems in combinatorial optimization including finding maximum matchings and maximum weight matchings in bipartite graphs and finding arborescences in directed graphs. Example Let G = (U,V,E) be a bipartite graph. One may define a matroid MU on the ground set E, in which a set of edges is independent if no two of the edges have the same endpoint in U. Similarly one may define a matroid MV in which a set of edges is independent if no two of the edges have the same endpoint in V. Any set of edges that is independent in both MU and MV has the property that no two of its edges share an endpoint; that is, it is a matching. Thus, the largest common independent set of MU and MV is a maximum matching in G. Extension The matroid intersection problem becomes NP-hard when three matroids are involved, instead of only two.
