Global polynomial optimization with Moment Matrices and Border Basis
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractOptimization appears in many areas of Scientific Computing, since the solution of a problem can often be described as the minimum of an optimization problem. We describe a new method to compute the global minimum of a real polynomial function and the ideal defining the points which minimize this polynomial function, assuming that the minimizer ideal is zero-dimensional. Our method is a generalization of Lasserre relaxation method and stops in a finite number of steps. The proposed algorithm combines Border Basis, Moment Matrices and Semidefinite Programming.In the case where the minimum is reached at a finite number of points, it provides a border basis of the minimizer ideal.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
