### Evidence that matrix multiplication is not in $O(n^2\log^kn)$ time

There's an algorithm for multiplying an $N \times N^{0.172}$ matrix with an $N^{0.172} \times N$ matrix in $N^2 \operatorname{polylog}\left(N\right)$ arithmetic operations. The main identity used for ...

### Evidence that matrix multiplication is not in $O(n^2\log^kn)$ time

Well, one thing is I think that all the constructions we know of - and even the families of potential constructions that people have proposed (e.g., Cohn-Umans approaches, generalizations of ...

### Fast Finding Main Diagonal of Matrix Multiplication

Not unless $\omega = 2$. Take $B = \operatorname{id}$, $A = \begin{bmatrix}X & Y\end{bmatrix}$. You can extract $XY$ from $A^TBA$. UPDATE: I missed the main diagonal part of the question. Even ...

### Bigger picture behind the choice of matrices in the Strassen algorithm

Several authors have attempted to elucidate the structure of Strassen's algorithm. The two most recent I am aware of are: Ikenmeyer and Lysikov '17 give a beautiful exposition, though ultimately the ...

### Is the exponent in the rectangular matrix multiplication convex?

Does Lemma 3.6 of https://arxiv.org/abs/2009.10217 answer your original question of convexity of the matrix multiplication constant?

### Is the exponent in the rectangular matrix multiplication convex?

I found an answer in the paper "Fast sparse matrix multiplication" as Theorem 2.4. The authors cite "Fast rectangular matrix multiplications and applications", so that's the ...

### Face-splitting product of two Vandermonde matrices: When is is invertible?

Sorry if I am missing something, but isn't it always singular in your special case? The first column is identically $1$, the second column is $(\beta_1,\ldots,\beta_{n^2})^T$, and the $n+1$'th column ...
