### A bound on the number of bilinear functions needed in order to obtain the minmax

For $n\in\mathbb N$, let $\Delta(n)=\{x\in\mathbb R^n:x_i\geq 0, \sum_ix_i=1\}$ be the set of probability vectors in $\mathbb R^n$.
Is there a function $m:\mathbb N\to\mathbb N$ such that for any ...

### Bunnity of multilinear maps

Is there a way to compute the following nullity of multilinear maps? As it is different from any nullity I know of, I call it bunnity after myself:-)) If it already has a name, it be nice to know it. ...

### When is a polynomial ring free over a graded subalgebra?

Keep the setting of my previous question and let $I := k[x_1, \dots, x_n] \cdot A_{>0}$ be an ideal of the algebra $k[x_1, \dots, x_n]$ generated by the set $A_{>0}$. It is clear that $I$ is a ...

### Tensor matricizations and their decompositions

Suppose we have a 4-index tensor $t_{ijkl}$ (all 4 dimensions are equal size). We can make a matrix out of it by taking first and last two indexes as new indexes: $t_{ijkl} \rightarrow M_{ij, kl}$. ...

### 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 + tB)...

### 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 ...
