## CONSTRAINED POLYNOMIAL OPTIMIZATION PROBLEMS WITH NONCOMMUTING VARIABLES

In this paper we study constrained eigenvalue optimization of noncommutative (nc) polynomials, focusing on the polydisc and the ball. Our three main results are as follows: (1) an nc polynomial is nonnegative if and only if it admits a weighted sum of hermitian squares decomposition; (2) (eigenvalue) optima for nc polynomials can be computed using … Read more
