A note on the gap between rank and border rank
We study the tensor rank of a certain algebra. As a result we find a sequence of tensors with a large gap between rank and border rank, and thus a counterexample to a conjecture of Rhodes. We also obtain a new lower bound on the tensor rank of powers of the generalized W-state.
