Degrees of Kalman varieties of tensors

  title={Degrees of Kalman varieties of tensors},
  author={Zahra Shahidi and Luca Sodomaco and Emanuele Ventura},
Kalman varieties of tensors are algebraic varieties consisting of tensors whose singular vector k-tuples lay on prescribed subvarieties. They were first studied by Ottaviani and Sturmfels in the context of matrices. We extend recent results of Ottaviani and the first author to the partially symmetric setting. We describe a generating function whose coefficients are the degrees of these varieties and we analyze its asymptotics, providing analytic results à la Zeilberger and Pantone. We emphasize…

Equations and syzygies of some Kalman varieties
Given a subspace L of a vector space V, the Kalman variety consists of all matrices of V that have a nonzero eigenvector in L. Ottaviani and Sturmfels described minimal equations in the case that dim
Equations of Kalman varieties
The Kalman variety of a linear subspace is a vector space consisting of all endomorphisms that have an eigenvector in that subspace. We resolve a conjecture of Ottaviani and Sturmfels and give the
Eigenschemes of Ternary Tensors
We study projective schemes arising from eigenvectors of tensors, called eigenschemes. After some general results, we give a birational description of the variety parametrizing eigenschemes of
On the number of Singular Vector Tuples of Hyper-Cubical Tensors
Shmuel Friedland and Giorgio Ottaviani's beautiful constant term expression for the number of singular vector tuples of generic tensors is used to derive a rational generating function for these
The Euclidean Distance Degree of an Algebraic Variety
A theory of such nearest point maps of a real algebraic variety with respect to Euclidean distance from the perspective of computational algebraic geometry is developed.
The Asymptotic Number of Simple Singular Vector Tuples of a Cubical Tensor
S. Ekhad and D. Zeilberger recently proved that the multivariate generating function for the number of simple singular vector tuples of a generic $m_1 \times \cdots \times m_d$ tensor has an elegant
The product of the eigenvalues of a symmetric tensor
Abstract We study E-eigenvalues of a symmetric tensor f of degree d on a finite-dimensional Euclidean vector space V, and their relation with the E-characteristic polynomial of f. We show that the
The geometric and numerical properties of duality in projective algebraic geometry
In this paper we investigate some fundamental geometric and numerical properties ofduality for projective varieties inPkN=PN. We take a point of view which in our opinion is somewhat moregeometric
The Number of Singular Vector Tuples and Uniqueness of Best Rank-One Approximation of Tensors
The uniqueness of best approximations for almost all real tensors in the following cases is shown: rank-one approximation; rank- one approximation for partially symmetric tensors (this approximation is also partially asymmetric); rank-(r_1,\ldots ,r_d) approximation for d-mode tensors.
Matrices with eigenvectors in a given subspace
The Kalman variety of a linear subspace in a vector space consists of all endomorphism that possess an eigenvector in that subspace. We study the defining polynomials and basic geometric invariants
