### A Matrix equation

Let $A$ and $B$ be two $n \times n$ full-rank matrices.
Let $XAY = B$ be the given equation where $X$ and $Y$ are unknown $n \times n$ matrices. We know that $Vec(B) = (Y^{T} \otimes X)Vec(A)$. Under ...

### Multilinear generalization of Cauchy-Schwarz inequality

Let $V$ be a real vector space, and let $(\cdot,\cdot;\cdot,\cdot) : V^4 \to \mathbb{R}$ be a multilinear form with the following properties:
$(x,y;z,w) = (y,x;z,w) = (x,y;w,z)$ (symmetry in the ...

### Co-ends as a trace operation on profunctors

The n-lab site on profunctors (http://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/profunctor) describes profunctor composition as using a co-end to "trace out" the connecting variable:
$F\circ G := \int^{d\in D} F(-, d) ...
