It is proved that the solution of the multiplicative Cauchy functional equation on the Lorentz cone of dimension greater than two is a power function of the determinant. The equation is solved in full generality, i.e. no smoothness assumptions on the unknown function are imposed. Also the functional equation of ratios, of a similar nature, is solved in full generality.

We show how the theory of ${\mathbb{Z}}_{2}^{n}$-manifolds - which are a non-trivial generalisation of supermanifolds - may be useful in a geometrical approach to mixed symmetry tensors such as the dual graviton. The geometric aspects of such tensor fields on both flat and curved space-times are discussed.
