The goal is to find a collection of functions that allow to combine messages in order to satisfy the demand of the receivers. In this paper, we study the fractional solvability problem of a network using an extension of the solvability problem in closure operators given by Gadouleau in 2013. We define linear programming problems via the desired extension in order to study capacities; using some information inequalities and characteristic-dependent linear rank inequalities, we obtain upper bounds on linear capacity of some networks and closure operators over some fields.</p>}, number={02}, journal={Selecciones Matemáticas}, author={Peña-Macias, Victor and Sarria, Humberto}, year={2019}, month={Dec.}, pages={264-274} }
