In den Nachrichten der k. Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften zu Gottingen vom Jahre 1898, S. 309–316 [diese Werke, Bd. II, S. 365 – 571] habe ich die folgende Aufgabe behandelt: Es seien φ, ψ, χ gegebene quadratische Formen von je n Variablen. Die Determinanten der drei Formen seien von Null verschieden. Man soll nun die Gleichung $$\varphi \left( {{x_1},{x_2},...,{x_n}} \right) \cdot \Psi \left( {{y_1},{y_2},...,{y_n}} \right) = \chi \left( {{z_1},{z_2},...,{z_n}} \right)$$ (1) auf die… Expand

By exploiting suitably constrained Zorn matrices, we present a new construction of the algebra of sextonions (over the algebraically closed field $$\mathbb {C}$$C). This allows for an explicitExpand

We study non-associative twisted group algebras over $${(\mathbb{Z}_2)^n}$$ with cubic twisting functions. We construct a series of algebras that extend the classical algebra of octonions in the sameExpand

Let $m,n\geq 3$, $(m-1)(n-1)+2\leq p\leq mn$, and $u=mn-p$. The set $\mathbb{R}^{u\times n\times m}$ of all real tensors with size $u\times n\times m$ is one to one corresponding to the set ofExpand

We consider a family, $\mathcal{F}$, of subsets of an $n$-set such that the cardinality of the symmetric difference of any two elements $F,F'\in\mathcal{F}$ is not a multiple of 4. We prove that theExpand

It is conjecture that $\hbox{rk} (e_{1}^{2})+\hbox(e_{2}^{ 2)+\cdots+\ hbox{ rk}(e_k}^2})\leq O(n\log n)$, and some results in this direction are proved. Expand

A connection between the (non)existence of real orthogonal tensors of order three and the classical Hurwitz problem on composition algebras can be established: existence of Orthogonal Tensors of size is equivalent to the admissibility of the triple $[\ell,m,n]$ to the Hurwitzproblem. Expand
