Representation of nonnegative convex polynomials

Jean B. Lasserre(lasserre***at***laas.fr)

Abstract: We provide a specific representation of convex polynomials nonnegative on a convex (not necessarily compact) basic closed semi-algebraic set $K$ of $R^n$. Namely, they belong to a specific subset of the quadratic module generated by the concave polynomials that define $K$.

Keywords: Convexity; basi semi-algebraic sets.
