Nonnegative Polynomials, Moment Problems and Real Symmetric Tensor Decompositions


The study of nonnegative polynomials is a basic problem in real
algebraic geometry. Truncated moment problem is a classical question in
real analysis. Symmetric tensor decompositions are of interest in many
areas of applied mathematics. The main goal of this talk is to explain
the tight connections between these three topics. I will also present
some recent results.
