1. Anatomy A muscle that stretches or tightens a body part.
2. Mathematics A set of quantities that obey certain transformation laws relating the bases in one generalized coordinate system to those of another and involving partial derivative sums. Vectors are simple tensors.

The last applications of the Holder inequality for mixed [l.sub.p] spaces presented here concern the Hardy--Littlewood inequality and the theory of multiple summing multilinear operators. As in the case of the Bohnenblust--Hille inequality (Section 5) the Holder inequality for multiple exponents allows a significant improvement in the constants of the Hardy--Littlewood inequality.
If T [member of] L ([X.sub.1], ..., [X.sub.m]; Y) is such that T* is a Cohen strongly p*-summing linear operator, then T is strongly p-summing multilinear operator.
The class of strongly summing multilinear operators was introduced by Dimant in [6].
We shall finish this section by announcing the definition of multilinear operators of finite type, as stated in [8].
