2016 Summer School on Real Algebraic Geometry and Optimization
July 11-15th, 2016
Georgia Tech

Organizers: Greg Blekherman, Rainer Sinn (Georgia Tech) and Mauricio Velasco (Universidad de la Rep├║blica, Uruguay and Universidad de los Andes, Colombia)

Guest Lecturers: Cynthia Vinzant (NC State) and Josephine Yu (Georgia Tech)

Description: The summer school is aimed at graduate students and recent PhD's with the goal of introducing them to latest developments in the theory of nonnegative polynomials and sums of squares and applications. See Program Description for more details.

Topics:
  • Geometry of Sums of Squares and Nonnegative Polynomials, recent connections with Classical Algebraic Geometry
  • Applications of Sums of Squares Methods in Optimization and Engineering

Funding: We have NSF funding for participants from US institutions. Please visit Applications to apply.
