There will, thankfully, be no mention of growth tensors in either course at any stage!

]]>Shiromoto wrote about the relation between the rank weight enumerator fo a code and the rank genetisch function of a q-polymatroidd, see https://arxiv.org/abs/1803.06041. More on q-polymatroids and coding theory can be found in a paper with Gorla, Ravagnani and Lopez, see https://arxiv.org/abs/1803.10844.

The question about a sensible definition of the Tutte polynomial of a q-matroid is still open. There is some preliminary work on ti with Bollen and Crapo (https://arxiv.org/abs/1707.03459), but it is far from finished.
