• Abstract We study the relationship between the commutative and the non-commutative rank of a linear matrix. We give examples that show that the ratio of the two ranks comes arbitrarily close to 2. Such examples can be used for giving lower bounds for the border rank of a given tensor. Landsberg used such techniques to give non-trivial equations for the tensors of border rank at most in if m is even. He also gave such equations for tensors of border rank at most in if m is odd. Using concavity… CONTINUE READING
