The Lie derivative of a general covariant $4$-tensor is given by $$\mathcal{L}_{K}R_{abcd} = X^{e}\nabla_{e}R_{abcd} + R_{ebcd}\nabla_{a}X^{e} + R_{aecd}\nabla_{b}X^{e} + R_{abed}\nabla_{c}X^{e} + R_{... 0answers 173 views ### Generalized differential geometry based on Penrose's abstract tensor systems? Penrose graphical notation has been an important precursor of string diagrams for monoidal categories. It was introduced in Penrose's paper Applications of negative dimensional tensors with intended ... 2answers 128 views ### Of all probability matrix P having stationary distribution \pi, find the one having smallest diagonal Hello MathOverflow community, I am requesting your help today trying to solve a somewhat odd problem. Is there a way to find through some numerical algorithm such as Newton's method the stochastic ... 0answers 15 views ### Show that a tensor-train is contained in a recursive sequence of subspaces Let p\in\mathbb N; n_k\in\mathbb N and \left(e^{(k)}_1,\ldots,e^{(k)}_{n_k}\right) denote the standard basis of \mathbb R^{n_k} for k\in\{1,\ldots,p\}; u\in\bigotimes_{k=1}^p\mathbb R^{n_k}... 1answer 56 views ### Cores in the tensor-train decomposition Let d_i\in\mathbb N, I_i:=\{1,\ldots,d_i\} and u\in\mathbb R^{d_1}\otimes\mathbb R^{d_2}\otimes\mathbb R^{d_3}. It's somehow clear to me that we may regard u as a three-dimensional array (see ... 0answers 109 views ### Formula with indices Does anyone recognize this as something familiar? \epsilon^{acm}\partial_m\Theta^{kb}+\frac12\epsilon^{abm}\partial_m\Theta^{kc} OR (\epsilon^{acm}\partial_m\Theta^{kb} +\frac12\epsilon^{abm}\... 2answers 123 views ### Rank of order-3 tensor with all slices being rank-1 If some tensor T=(t_{ijk}) has that all of its (2 dimensional) slices (along all 3 axes) are of rank-1, does it follow that the tensor is also rank-1? That is, can be written as$$ t_{ijk}=a_i b_j ...
I want to know if it is possible to express the operation $$\nabla \phi \times (\nabla \times \mathbf A)$$ as the divergence of second order tensor field $T$. Here $\phi$ is a scalar field and \$\...
