Let X be projective smooth variety over an algebraically closed field k and let , be μ-semistable locally free sheaves on X. When the base field is , using transcendental methods, one can prove that the tensor product is always a μ-semistable sheaf. However, this theorem is no longer true over positive characteristic; for an analogous theorem one needs the hypothesis of strong μ-semistability; nevertheless, this hypothesis is not a necessary condition. The objective of this paper is to construct, without the strongly μ-semistability hypothesis, a family of locally free sheaves with μ-stable tensor product.
