Sum-of-squares hierarchy lower bounds for symmetric formulations

We introduce a method for proving Sum-of-Squares (SoS)/ Lasserre hierarchy lower bounds when the initial problem formulation exhibits a high degree of symmetry. Our main technical theorem allows us to reduce the study of the positive semidefiniteness to the analysis of ``well-behaved'' univariate polynomial inequalities.

We illustrate the technique on ... more >>>

Multiplicative Approximations for Polynomial Optimization Over the Unit Sphere

Revisions: 1

We consider the following basic problem: given an $n$-variate degree-$d$ homogeneous polynomial $f$ with real coefficients, compute a unit vector $x \in \mathbb{R}^n$ that maximizes $|f(x)|$. Besides its fundamental nature, this problem arises in many diverse contexts ranging from tensor and operator norms to graph expansion to quantum information ... more >>>
