A publication of the Theta Foundation

The volume is a careful selection of peer-reviewed papers in operator theory, structured matrices, and dilations, dedicated to Tiberiu Constantinescu, a prominent mathematician in the field.

The extensive survey of J. W. Helton and M. Putinar on positive polynomials, spectral theorem, and optimization is a pioneering essay that, under the unifying concept of positivity, brings together ideas from algebra, algebraic geometry, complex analysis, control theory, mathematical logic, and operator theory.

The other research papers deal with recent advances in the following areas:

multivariable operator theory

interpolation and moment problems

perturbation theory

composition operators

matrix completion problems

systems theory

A publication of the Theta Foundation. Distributed worldwide, except in Romania, by the AMS.
