## Main Question or Discussion Point

One of the ways to introduce the amplituhedron is through the equation ##Y = C Z^T ## where ## Z \in M^+(k+m,n)##, ##C \in Gr_{\leq 0} (k,n)##, ##Y \in Gr(k,k+m)##.

I am trying to understand what the parameter ##k## represents. For a while, I thought that this ##k## was counting the number of particles with negative helicities but that it seems to be incorrect. Can someone help? Thanks.
