The conference covers topics related to real algebra and geometry, as well as its connections to optimization, convexity, functional analysis and other areas. Real algebraic geometry studies semialgebraic sets over the reals or general real closed fields. In algebraic terms, one studies nonnegative polynomials on such sets, and describes them as (generalized) sums of squares. This approach goes back to Hilbert’s 17th Problem. It helps understanding semialgebraic sets and establishes a close connection to optimization, mostly via semidefinite programming. Convex hulls of semialgebraic sets can also be understood via their nonnegative polynomials, and this helps classifying sets for convex optimization. There are also connections to functional analysis, via moment problems and non-commutative polynomial inequalities.
