Positive polynomials on unbounded domains

Certificates of non-negativity are fundamental tools in optimization. A "certificate'' is generally understood as an expression that makes the non-negativity of the function in question evident. Recently, sum-of-squares certificates of non-negativity for polynomials have been used to obtain powerful numerical techniques for solving polynomial optimization problems; in particular, for mixed integer programs, and non-convex binary programs. We present a new certificate of non-negativity for polynomials over the intersection of a closed set S and the zero set of a given polynomial h(x). The certificate is written in terms of the set of non-negative polynomials over S and the ideal generated by h(x). Our certificate of non-negativity yields a copositive programming reformulation for a very general class of polynomial optimization problems.
