Abstract:
For an arbitrary set E and a closure operator defined on the power set of E we construct a symmetric closure operator in a rather canonical way. If E is finite the corresponding symmetric closure operator defines a matroid. Moreover, the symmetrization process is applied to closure operators induced by visibility.
