### On a tentative generalization of the Schmidt decomposition

Background
I am a PhD student in Physics and I am currently developing quite refined computer codes that allow to simulate many-body quantum systems living on a lattice. The difficulty resides in ...

### Is there an analogue of spin/oscillator representation for the general linear Lie algebra?

(Work over complex numbers)
Let $V$ be an orthogonal space. Let $Pin(V)$ be the double cover of the orthogonal group $O(V)$. Then $Pin(V)$ has a basic spin representation which we can think of as the ...

### Tensor rank of anti-symmetric tensor

Let $V$ be a vector space of dimension $n$. Let us consider $V^{\otimes n}=V\otimes V \ldots \otimes V$. This vector space contains one dimentional vector space $\wedge^n V$. My question is does it ...

### Real-rooted polynomials and higher rank matrices

For $A$ and $B$ being matrices of the same dimension and $B$ being rank $1$, one knows that $det(A+tB)$ is a linear polynomial in $t \in \mathbb{R}$. Hence by Taylor series it follows that $det(A + ...

### Tensors as multilinear maps

I am aware that many books on differential geometry define tensors as multilinear maps. Namely
$$
V\otimes W := L_2(V^* \times W^*,\Bbb F)
$$
I am also aware that this space is isomorphic to the ...

### Non-negative Quadratic forms with Exterior Forms

Hello All,
I apologize if the following question is too elementary. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Let $n\geqslant 4$, $X$ be an $n$-dimensional inner product space over ...

### Singular quadratic space

Let $(V,b)$ a symmetric bilinear space. An old theorem of Witt says that if $(V,b)$ is regular, then given a subspace $W$ of $V$ and an isometry $\sigma: W \to V$, there exists an isometry $\Sigma: V ...

### What can we say about variational energies here?

Let $V_{ij}^{lk}$ be any $nm \times nm$ real symmetric matrix, $\forall i,j,k,l$
\begin{equation}
V_{ij}^{kl}=V_{ji}^{lk}
\end{equation}
(So for the indices we have $1 \leq k,l \leq m$ and $1 \leq i,j ...

### When a hyperplane of symmetric forms is determined by a quadric hypersurface?

Let $L$ be a 2D real vector space, $L^*$ its dual, and $\{V,\omega\}$ the symplectic space with $V=L\oplus L^*$ and $\omega$ unambiguously defined by $\omega(l,\lambda):=\lambda(l)$, for all $l\in L$ ...
