### Is there a rank for higher degree homogeneous forms analogous to that of quadratic forms?

Given a quadratic form $Q(x_1, ..., x_n)$, there is a natural notion of rank defined by looking at the rank of the unique symmetric matrix associated to the quadratic form, i.e. we consider the ...

### Generalization of the polarisation formula for symmetric bilinear forms to symmetric multilinear forms

Given a symmetric bilinear form $f:V\times V \to K$ , where $V$ is a vector space and $K$ is an appropriate field, define the quadratic form $q:V \to K$ as $q(v):= f(v,v)$. The Polarisation Formula ...

### Augmentation ideal is finitely generated if and only if $A$ is finitely generated as a $k$-algebra?

Let $A \subset k[x_1, \dots, x_n]$ be a subalgebra, which is also a graded subspace $A = \oplus_{i \ge 0} A_i$. One can write $A = A_0 \oplus A_{> 0}$ where we have $A_0 = k^0[x_1, \dots, x_n] = k$ ...

### Alternating multilinear invariants of GL(n) on End (k^n)

Introduction. Let $k$ be a field of characteristic $0$, and let $n\in\mathbb N$. Let $V=k^n$. The group $\mathrm{GL}_n\left(k\right)=\mathrm{GL} V$ acts on $\mathrm{End} V$ by conjugation, and thus ...

### Is the (super-)symmetric power of the exterior algebra free?

Let $V$ be a vector space over $k$ of dimension $m$. (I'm only interested in the case $k=\mathbb{Q}$.) Let $R:=\Lambda^*V$ be the exterior algebra. It carries the structure of a supercommutative ring: ...

### Waring rank vs tensor rank of symmetric tensors?

Suppose we work in an algebraically closed field. Then, do the Waring rank (symmetric tensor rank) and tensor rank of a symmetric tensor coincide in general? Recall that tensor rank is rank with ...

### (Efficient) computation of symmetric powers of square matrices

I'm looking for software that can compute symmetric powers of medium-size square (say rational, 100 by 100) matrices, and ideally can do so efficiently if the matrix is sparse enough. I haven't found ...

### A basis of the symmetric power consisting of powers

I have asked this question on math.se, but did not get an answer - I was quite surprised because I thought that lots of people must have though about this before: Let $V$ be a complex vector space ...

### Subgroups of the tensor product $A\otimes A$

I have this problem about subgroups of the tensor product of an abelian group $A$ with itself which arises from a complete different setting. I fell into this question studying quandles and quandle ...
