## Hyperbolic Polynomials Approach to Van der Waerden/Schrijver-Valiant like Conjectures :\

The paper describes various combinatorial and algorithmic applications of hyperbolic (multivariate) polynomials . Section 2.2 introduces a new class of polynomials , which include as hyperbolic polynomials as well volume polynomials $Vol(x_1C_1+…+x_nC_n)$ , where $C_i$ are convex compact subsets of $R^n$. This extension leads to randomized poly-time algorithm to approximate $M(C_1,…,C_n)$ (the mixed volume) within … Read more
