### Abstract

One way to represent a matching in a graph of a set A with a set B is with a one-to-one function m : A → B for which each pair {a, m(a)} is an edge of the graph. If the underlying set of vertices of the graph is linearly ordered and every element of A is less than every element of B, then such a matching is a down-up matching. In this paper we investigate graphs on well-ordered sets of type α and in many circumtances find either large independent sets of type β or down-up matchings with the initial set of some prescribed size γ. In this case we write α → (β, γ-matching).

If the underlying set of vertices of the graph is linearly ordered and every element of A is less than every element of B, then such a matching is a down-up matching.
