Aim of the workshopThis workshop focuses on the recent exciting developments on the interplay between optimization and polynomials, in particular, the field of real algebraic geometry dealing with representations of positive polynomials as sums of squares. The linking element relies on the following facts:
Format of the workshopThe workshop will begin with a one-day tutorial on the theme: Sums of Squares in Optimization. The aim of this tutorial day is to present results about polynomial representations and their use in optimization to non-specialists. The tutorial lectures will be delivered by three experts in the area. The last two days of the workshop will consist of invited and contributed lectures.
