Sparsity in Sums of Squares of Polynomials

Representation of a given nonnegative multivariate polynomial in terms of a sum of squares of polynomials has become an essential subject in recent developments of sums of squares optimization and SDP (semidefinite programming) relaxation of polynomial optimization problems. We disscuss effective methods to obtain a simpler representation of a “sparse” polynomial as a sum of … Read more

A General Framework for Convex Relaxation of Polynomial Optimization Problems over Cones

The class of POPs (Polynomial Optimization Problems) over cones covers a wide range of optimization problems such as $0$-$1$ integer linear and quadratic programs, nonconvex quadratic programs and bilinear matrix inequalities. This paper presents a new framework for convex relaxation of POPs over cones in terms of linear optimization problems over cones. It provides a … Read more
