We will start with a short introduction to both matroids and Lagrangian matroids, which are a generalization of ordinary matroids. As an example we then consider the Catalan matroid, the set of lattice paths from (0,0) to (2n,0) that stay above the x-axis ("Dyck paths"). Weakening the conditions on this structure, one can consider the set of lattice paths between two fixed paths with a common starting and a common end point, such that one stays above the other. This also yields a matroid.

The class of these matroids ("lattice path matroids", LPMs) can further be generalized by asking for the boundary paths to just have the same length instead of a common end point. This way, one obtains the class of lattice path Lagrangian matroids (LPLMs). Both these classes were studied by A. de Mier and J. Bonin.

If time allows, I will present a result relating LPLMs and LPMs by E.Kim, D. Schymura and A.G.
