An Introduction to Nonnegativity and Polynomial Optimization

In science and engineering we regularly face hard, nonlinear polynomial optimization problems.
Solving these problems is essentially equivalent to certifying nonnegativity of multivariate, real
polynomials – a key problem in real algebraic geometry since the 19th century.
In this talk, we discuss how to tackle such problems both from the perspective of algebra and
