On lattice path matroid polytopes: integer points and Ehrhart polynomial

Abstract : In this paper we investigate the number of integer points lying in dilations of lattice path matroid polytopes. We give a characterization of such points as polygonal paths in the diagram of the lattice path matroid. Furthermore, we prove that lattice path matroid poly-topes are affinely equivalent to a family of distributive polytopes. As applications we obtain two new infinite families of matroids verifying a conjecture of De Loera et. al. and present an explicit formula of the Ehrhart polynomial for one of them.
