Equivalence between Linear Tangle and Maximal Single Ideal
Abstract: The concept of linear tangle was introduced as an obstruction to mixed searching number. The concept of single ideal has been introduced as an obstruction to linear-width. Moreover, it was already known that mixed search number is equivalent to linear-width. Hence, by combining those results, we obtain a proof of the equivalence between linear tangle and single ideal. This short report gives an alternative proof of the equivalence.
