During July 11-15, 2016 Georgia Tech will host Summer School on Real Algebraic Geometry and Optimization organized by Greg Blekherman and Rainer Sinn (Georgia Tech) and Mauricio Velasco (Universidad de los Andes). 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. The topics for the school are:
- Geometry of Sums of Squares and Nonnegative Polynomials, recent connections with Classical Algebraic Geometry
- Applications of Sums of Squares Methods in Optimization and Engineering
Location: Skiles 006.
