SUMMARY:Computational variants of the general Lax conjecture
DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Rafael Oliviera (University of Waterloo)\n\nAbstract:
\nHyperbolicity cones are convex semialgebraic sets generalizing both poly
hedral and spectrahedral cones\, the latter forming the basic geometric se
ts from linear and semidefinite programming. Hyperbolic polynomials\, whic
h give rise to these hyperbolicity cones\, have recently found application
s in several areas of mathematics\, statistical physics\, computer science
\, and optimization. The general Lax conjecture is a fundamental question
in real algebraic geometry and optimization: do hyperbolicity cones form a
strict generalization of spectrahedral cones?\nIn this talk\, we will giv
e an introduction to hyperbolic polynomials and their cones\, and raise se
veral computational questions related to these objects\, which blend algeb
raic complexity\, real algebraic geometry\, proof complexity and optimizat
ion.\n
