Theorem 4.1 For a triple (P, {hni}n∈N , L) satisfying (P0), (P2), (P3) and (PV), there exists a regular conformal superalgebra (RP , {(n)}n∈N , L) whose reduced subspace is P and the products satisfies (a(n) b)0 = ahni b for al l a, b ∈ P , n ∈ N.

For a cdga B and an integer n, we define S pel(M )(B )n to be the set of pairs (u, α), where u : A −→ Γn(B ) is a morphism of cdga, and α : M −→ Γn (B ) is a morphism of dg-A-modules.

Rank Independence and Rearrangements of Random Variables
A and B are any square matrices of order n. A canonical realization of a Jordan algebra of the type P (n) consists of all matrices of the form: (cid:26)(cid:18) A B C At (cid:19)(cid:27) where A is any square matrix of order n, B is a symmetric matrix of order n, C is a skewsymmetric matrix of order n.

The level matching condition has the usual form ∞Xn=−∞ (cid:0)n a+ n b−n (cid:1) , n a−n − n b+ and therefore the sum of a-modes should be equal to the sum of b-modes.

The last assertion follows easily: N (C ) ⊆ N (B ) because AC = B ; conversely, if Bx = 0 then C x ∈ N (A) ∩ R(C ) ⊆ N (A) ∩ M = {0}, which shows that N (B ) ⊆ N (C ).
Weighted generalized inverses, oblique projections and least squares problems
Then, for every non zero x0 ∈ N (B )⊥ and u ∈ x0 + N (B ), it holds kukA ≤ kxkA for every x ∈ x0 + N (B ) if and only if there exists Q ∈ P (A, N (B )) such that u = (I − Q)x0 .
Weighted generalized inverses, oblique projections and least squares problems
Applying the last proposition to the operator PN (B ) and the vector x0 ∈ H \ N (B ) = H \ R(PN (B ) ) this is equivalent to the existence of Q ∈ P (A, N (B )) such that PN (B ) u = −Qx0 .
