Positive polynomials on unbounded equality-constrained domains

Certificates of non-negativity are fundamental tools in optimization. A “certificate” is generally understood as an expression that makes the non-negativity of the function in question evident. Some classical certificates of non-negativity are Farkas Lemma and the S-lemma. The lift-and-project procedure can be seen as a certificate of non-negativity for affine functions over the union of … Read more
