On bounds of the Pythagoras number of the sum of square magnitudes of Laurent polynomials

Abstract / Introduction Related Papers Cited by
  • This paper presents a lower and upper bound of the Pythagoras number of sum of square magnitudes of Laurent polynomials (sosm-polynomials). To prove these bounds, properties of the corresponding system of quadratic polynomial equations are used. Applying this method, a new proof for the best (known until now) upper bound of the Pythagoras number of real polynomials is also presented.
