Lagrangian-Conic Relaxations, Part II: Applications to Polynomial Optimization Problems

We present the moment cone (MC) relaxation and a hierarchy of sparse Lagrangian-SDP relaxations of polynomial optimization problems (POPs) using the unified framework established in Part I. The MC relaxation is derived for a POP of minimizing a polynomial subject to a nonconvex cone constraint and polynomial equality constraints. It is an extension of the … Read more
