We study the Fano scheme of [Formula: see text]-planes contained in the hypersurface cut out by a generic sum of products of linear forms. In particular, we show that under certain hypotheses, linear subspaces of sufficiently high dimension must be contained in a coordinate hyperplane. We use our results on these Fano schemes to obtain a lower bound for the product rank of a linear form. This provides a new lower bound for the product ranks of the [Formula: see text] Pfaffian and [Formula: see… 

Toric degenerations, Fano schemes and computations in tropical geometry

Tropical geometry is a developing area of mathematics in between algebraic geometry, combinatorics and polyhedral geometry. The main objects of study are tropical varieties which can be seen as

The Waring Rank of the 3 x 3 Determinant

Let f be a homogeneous polynomial of degree d with coefficients in C. The Waring rank of f is the smallest integer r such that f is a sum of r powers of linear forms. We show that the Waring rank of

Lines, conics, and all that

This is a survey on the Fano schemes of linear spaces, conics, rational curves, and curves of higher genera in smooth projective hypersurfaces, complete intersections, Fano threefolds, etc.

Apolarity for determinants and permanents of generic matrices

We show that the apolar ideals to the determinant and permanent of a generic matrix, the Pfaffian of a generic skew symmetric matrix and the Hafnian of a generic symmetric matrix are each generated

The method of prolongation is used to obtain equations for secant varieties of Chow varieties as $ GL(V)$- modules as $GL(V),$-modules to prove Valiant's conjecture.

Lines on projective hypersurfaces

Abstract We study the Hilbert scheme of lines on hypersurfaces in the projective space. The main result is that for a smooth Fano hypersurface of degree at most 6 over an algebraically closed field

Flattenings and Koszul Young flattenings arising in complexity theory

ABSTRACT I find new equations for Chow varieties, their secant varieties, and an additional variety that arises in the study of complexity theory by flattenings and Koszul Young flattenings. This

Fano schemes of determinants and permanents

Let $D_{m,n}^r$ and $P_{m,n}^r$ denote the subschemes of $\mathbb{P}^{mn-1}$ given by the $r\times r$ determinants (respectively the $r\times r$ permanents) of an $m\times n$ matrix of

Product Ranks of the 3 × 3 Determinant and Permanent

Abstract We show that the product rank of the $3\,\times \,3$ determinant ${{\det }_{3}}$ is $5$ , and the product rank of the $3\,\times \,3$ permanent $\text{per}{{\text{m}}_{3}}$ is $4$ . As a

Inspired by the heuristics of convex relaxation, the nuclear norm is considered instead of the rank of a tensor and thenuclear norm of various tensors of interest is determined.
