The Hard Lefschetz Theorem (HLT) and the Hodge–Riemann bilinear relations (HRR) hold in various contexts: they impose restrictions on the cohomology algebra of a smooth compact Kähler manifold; they restrict the local monodromy of a polarized variation of Hodge structure; they impose conditions on the f-vectors of convex polytopes. While the statements of these theorems depend on the choice of a Kähler class, or its analog, there is usually a cone of possible choices. It is then natural to ask whether the HLT and HRR remain true in a mixed context. In this note, we present a unified approach to proving the mixed HLT and HRR, generalizing the known results, and proving it in new cases, such as the intersection cohomology of nonrational polytopes.
