Newton Polytopes and Relative Entropy Optimization.

With Venkat Chandrasekaran and Adam Wierman. Currently available on arXiv. The main results were presented in two parts at ISMP 2018: Newton Polytopes and Relative Entropy Optimization (slides), and Exactness of Relative Entropy Relaxations for Signomial Programs (slides). The second talk mentions a CVXPY-based implementation of the SAGE hierarchy.

Structured State Feedback for Metzler Dynamics.
