### Inner products on super vector spaces

Let $V=V^0\oplus V^1$ be a super vector space (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_vector_space) Is there a special definition of an inner product on $V$ other than just an inner product on the ...

### Proof that $e_{k,j}^{\tau}(q,p)=\overline{e_{j,k}^{\tau}(-q,-p)}$ in the spectral theory of the twisted Laplacian?

I leave some context for this question, this question is about the spectral analysis of the twisted Laplacian, I need some assistance in solving this problem. A fundamental ingredient in the ...

### Kernels with finite dimensional feature spaces

Suppose $x,y \in \mathbb{R}^n$ for some given fixed n. Consider a kernel $K(x,y) = f(\langle x, y \rangle)$, I'd like to know which functions $f$ admit a finite dimensional feature map. In other words,...

### Matrix norm minimization and matrix inner product

One of the famous problem in SDP is the matrix norm minimization (see S. Boyd, Convex Optimization, p. 170). Consider: \begin{equation}\label{eq:Lasse} \begin{aligned} &\min_{\mathbf{x}} & &...

### A linear algebra question for semi-Euclidean norm

Let us consider Minkowski inner product on $\mathbb R^{1+n}$, defined by $$\langle v,w \rangle = -v_0w_0+\sum_{j=1}^n v_j w_j\quad \,\forall\, v,w \in \mathbb R^{1+n}.$$ We say that a vector $v$ is ...

### Which inner products preserve positive correlation?

Suppose we have a symmetric PD or PSD matrix M which induces an inner product $\langle \cdot, \cdot \rangle_M$. If we have that $\langle x, y \rangle > 0$ for two unit vectors $x$, $y$, are there ...

### Any inequalities / estimates for a lower bound of the $L^2$ inner product of a quantity and its derivative?

For some numerical analysis of a fluid, I am wondering if there is any inequality that provides a lower bound (in the $L^2$ norm), for the $L^2$ inner product of a quantity with its derivative. In ...

### On a special type of normed linear spaces

Let $(V,\|.\|)$ be a normed linear space such that for every group $(G,*)$, every function $f:G \to V$ satisfying $$\|f(x*y)\|\ge \|f(x)+f(y)\|,\qquad\forall x,y\in G,\tag{Z}$$ is a group ...

### Terminology for research on distributions of inner products

Consider a set of vectors $M$ from an inner product space $V$. The ordered set of inner products of all pairs of elements in $M$ uniquely characterizes $M$ up to isomorphism. Suppose now that $V$ is ...

### Maximum number of vectors in a hypercube satisfying given conditions

$\mathcal{C}$ is a collection of binary vectors of length $n$, i.e. $\mathcal{C}\subseteq\{0,1\}^n$. For arbitrary $x,y,z\in\mathcal{C}$ and $x\neq z$, $y\neq z$, there always holds that the Euclidean ...
