## On the algebraic structure of the copositive cone

We decompose the copositive cone $\copos{n}$ into a disjoint union of a finite number of open subsets $S_{\cal E}$ of algebraic sets $Z_{\cal E}$. Each set $S_{\cal E}$ consists of interiors of faces of $\copos{n}$. On each irreducible component of $Z_{\cal E}$ these faces generically have the same dimension. Each algebraic set $Z_{\cal E}$ is … Read more
