Entropic proximal operators for nonnegative trigonometric polynomials

Signal processing applications of semidefinite optimization are often rooted in sum-of-squares representations of nonnegative trigonometric polynomials. Interior-point solvers for semidefinite optimization can handle constraints of this form with a per-iteration-complexity that is cubic in the degree of the trigonometric polynomial. The purpose of this paper is to discuss first-order methods with a lower complexity per … Read more
