On Sum of Squares Representation of Convex Forms and Generalized Cauchy-Schwarz Inequalities

A convex form of degree larger than one is always nonnegative since it vanishes together with its gradient at the origin. In 2007, Parrilo asked if convex forms are always sums of squares. A few years later, Blekherman answered the question in the negative by showing through volume arguments that for high enough number of … Read more
