Neural codes and the factor complex Academic Article uri icon


  • We introduce the factor complex of a neural code, and show how intervals and maximal codewords are captured by the combinatorics of factor complexes. We use these results to obtain algebraic and combinatorial characterizations of max-intersection-complete codes, as well as a new combinatorial characterization of intersection-complete codes.
