DSOS and SDSOS Optimization: More Tractable Alternatives to Sum of Squares and Semidefinite Optimization

In recent years, optimization theory has been greatly impacted by the advent of sum of squares (SOS) optimization. The reliance of this technique on large-scale semidefinite programs however, has limited the scale of problems to which it can be applied. In this paper, we introduce DSOS and SDSOS optimization as linear programming and second-order cone … Read more

Moment approximations for set-semidefinite polynomials

The set of polynomials which are nonnegative over a subset of the nonnegative orthant (we call them set semidefinite) have many uses in optimization. A common example of this type of set is the set of copositive matrices, where effectively we are considering nonnegativity over the entire nonnegative orthant and we limit the polynomials to … Read more
