### What are alternative or equivalent definitions of a positive-definite function on a group?

The standard definition of a positive-definite function on a group goes as follows: Let $\varphi : G \rightarrow L(H)$, where $G$ is a group (with an involution) and $H$ a Hilbert space. $L(H)$ is the ...

### Maximum number of vectors with bounds on inner products (follow up question)

This is a follow-up question from my previous question. Suppose there are (2n+1) vectors $\{m_1,m_2,...,m_n\}$, $\{p_1,p_2,...,p_n\}$ and $p^*$ in $R^{k+1}$. $m_i$ are weakly positive vectors. $p_i$ ...

### General bivariate functions that satisfy Cauchy-Schwarz

Have there been any study of general bivariate functions $f:X \times X \to \mathbb{R}$ that satisfy $f(x,y)^2 \leq f(x,x)f(y,y)$. This comes up as a function I'm working with satisfies the asymmetric ...

### Do involutions always stabilize some transverse lagrangians?

Let $V$ be a vector space of dimension $2n\geq 4$ over a field $F$ of characteristic distinct from $2$. Assume that $V$ is equipped with a nondegenerate alternating form $b$. Let $Sp(V)$ denote the ...
