Semidefinite approximations of the polynomial abscissa0

Abstract

Given a univariate polynomial, its abscissa is the maximum real part of its roots. The abscissa arises naturally when controlling linear differential equations. As a function of the polynomial coefficients, the abscissa is Hölder continuous, and not locally Lipschitz in general, which is a source of numerical difficulties for designing and optimizing… (More)
