A slice decomposition is an expression of a homogeneous polynomial as a sum of forms with a linear factor. A strength decomposition is an expression of a homogeneous polynomial as a sum of reducible forms. The slice rank and the strength of a polynomial are the minimal lengths of such decompositions, respectively. The slice rank is an upper bound for the strength and we observe that the gap between these two values can be arbitrary large. However, in line with a conjecture by Catalisano et al…

Universality of High-Strength Tensors
A theorem due to Kazhdan and Ziegler implies that, by substituting linear forms for its variables, a homogeneous polynomial of sufficiently high strength specialises to any given polynomial of the
The set of forms with bounded strength is not closed
The strength of a homogeneous polynomial (or form) $f$ is the smallest length of an additive decomposition expressing it whose summands are reducible forms. We show that the set of forms with bounded
Strength and slice rank of forms are generically equal
Abstract. We prove that strength and slice rank of homogeneous polynomials of degree d ≥ 5 over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero coincide generically. To show this, we establish a
The strength for line bundles
We introduce the strength for sections of a line bundle on an algebraic variety. This generalizes the strength of homogeneous polynomials that has been recently introduced to resolve Stillman's

A short note on Cayley-Salmon equations.
A Cayley-Salmon equation for a smooth cubic surface $S$ in $\mathbb P^3$ is an expression of the form $l_1l_2l_3 - m_1m_2m_3 = 0$ such that the zero set is $S$ and $l_i$, $m_j$ are homogeneous linear

Questions and conjectures on extremal Hilbert series
Given an ideal of forms in an algebra (polynomial ring, tensor algebra, exterior algebra, Lie algebra, bigraded polynomial ring), we consider the Hilbert series of the factor ring. We concentrate on

We state a conjectural upper bound for the Hilbert function of the ideal 3p of functions vanishing to order at least a' at a set P of s generic points of P n , and verify the bound in some cases. We
