Tensors are fundamental objects in multilinear algebra, with important applications to the complexity of matrix multiplication, signal processing, phylogenetics and algebraic statistics. In applications, one generally looks for minimal decomposition of tensors as linear combinations of undecomposable tensors. The smallest integer

In this talk I will explain some applications of tensors decomposition and interpret the problem from the point of view of algebraic geometry. In particular, I will present new results about ranks of tensors, in collaboration with Alex Massarenti and Rick Rischter.
