If $A\ne 0$ is a square matrix over a commutative ring with $\det A=0$, then its null space contains an element whose components are minors of $A$

Let $R$ denote a commutative ring and $A\ne 0$ a $n\times n$ matrix over $R$ with $\det A=0$. Then there exists a $x\in\ker A\setminus\left\{0\right\}$ such that all components of $x$ are minors of ...

What kind of algebraic structure is this

I know that a commutative ring with an additional scalar multiplication on it is called an associative algebra. If the ring also has a 1 it is called a unital algebra. What would you call a field with ...

Extension of a linear map to a commutative graded algebra

Let's fix the notation, $V=\bigoplus_{i\geq 0}{V^i}$ is a graded vector space and $\Lambda V$ is the free commutative graded algebra on $V$. I have been struggling to understand this example: ...
Let $R=\mathbb C[t_1,\ldots,t_N]$ be a polynomial ring in some number of variables. Assume that $f_{ij}\in R$ are homogeneous linear polynomials for $1\le i,j\le n$. If $\det(f_{ij})=0$, I can ...
