Baker and Lorscheid have developed a theory of foundation that characterize the representability of matroids. Justin Chen and I are developing a computer program that computes representations of matroids based on the theory of foundation. In this talk, I will introduce backgrounds on matroids and the foundation, then I will talk about the key algorithms in computing the morphisms of pastures. If possible, I will also show some examples of the program.
