 Apolar Schemes of Algebraic Forms This is a note on the classical Waring's problem for algebraic forms. Fix integers $(n,d,r,s)$, and let $\Lambda$ be a general $r$-dimensional subspace of degree $d$ homogeneous polynomials in $n+1$ variables. Let $\mathcal{A}$ denote the variety of $s$-sided polar polyhedra of $\Lambda$. We carry out a case-by-case study of the structure of $\mathcal{A}$ for several specific values of $(n,d,r,s)$. In the first batch of examples, $\mathcal{A}$ is shown to be a rational variety. In the second batch, $\mathcal{A}$ is a finite set of which we calculate the cardinality.} Keywords:Waring's problem, apolarity, polar polyhedronCategories:14N05, 14N15

 Slim Exceptional Sets for Sums of Cubes We investigate exceptional sets associated with various additive problems involving sums of cubes. By developing a method wherein an exponential sum over the set of exceptions is employed explicitly within the Hardy-Littlewood method, we are better able to exploit excess variables. By way of illustration, we show that the number of odd integers not divisible by $9$, and not exceeding $X$, that fail to have a representation as the sum of $7$ cubes of prime numbers, is $O(X^{23/36+\eps})$. For sums of eight cubes of prime numbers, the corresponding number of exceptional integers is $O(X^{11/36+\eps})$. Keywords:Waring's problem, exceptional setsCategories:11P32, 11P05, 11P55
