Most harmful heuristic?
I agree with Scott Aaronson. In fact, the physicist way of defining tensors as things that change correctly under coordinates gives a nice way to define tensor fields on manifolds (Simply a smooth collection of multi-index beasts on different open sets such that on the intersection they are related by an appropriate transformation (the transition functions of the tensor bundle)). I am not sure if this "heuristic" actually gives rise to wrong intuitions. |

Convexity of a (non-symmetric) function of matrices
Yes. I forgot to add the assumption of semidefiniteness. |

Matrix-convexity of inverse of the cofactor matrix
Thanks. It arose in proving uniform estimates for an elliptic Monge-Ampere type PDE. |

Geometric mean of two matrices
Thank you. Unfortunately, case 1 is the more problematic one of the two. This is because $K \neq 0$ cannot be $\leq 0$ (its trace is $0$). |

$L^p$ stability of the Beltrami equation
Fair enough. Indeed I want them to be uniformly quasiconformal. In fact, stronger than that. |
