On Valuations, Places and Graded Rings Associated to $*$-Orderings We study natural $*$-valuations, $*$-places and graded $*$-rings
associated with $*$-ordered rings.
We prove that the natural $*$-valuation is always quasi-Ore and is
even quasi-commutative (\emph{i.e.,} the corresponding graded $*$-ring is
commutative), provided the ring contains an imaginary unit.
Furthermore, it is proved that the graded $*$-ring is isomorphic
to a twisted semigroup algebra. Our results are applied to answer a question
of Cimpri\v c regarding $*$-orderability of quantum
groups.

Optimization of Polynomial Functions This paper develops a refinement of Lasserre's algorithm for
optimizing a polynomial on a basic closed semialgebraic set via
semidefinite programming and addresses an open question concerning the
duality gap. It is shown that, under certain natural stability
assumptions, the problem of optimization on a basic closed set reduces
to the compact case.

Approximating Positive Polynomials Using Sums of Squares The paper considers the relationship between positive polynomials,
sums of squares and the multi-dimensional moment problem in the
general context of basic closed semi-algebraic sets in real $n$-space.
The emphasis is on the non-compact case and on quadratic module
representations as opposed to quadratic preordering presentations.
The paper clarifies the relationship between known results on the
algebraic side and on the functional-analytic side and extends these
results in a variety of ways.

Extending the Archimedean Positivstellensatz to the Non-Compact Case A generalization of Schm\"udgen's Positivstellensatz is given which holds
for any basic closed semialgebraic set in $\mathbb{R}^n$ (compact or not).
The proof is an extension of W\"ormann's proof.

A Real Holomorphy Ring without the SchmÃ¼dgen Property A preordering $T$ is constructed in the polynomial ring $A = \R
[t_1,t_2, \dots]$ (countably many variables) with the following two
properties: (1)~~For each $f \in A$ there exists an integer $N$
such that $-N \le f(P) \le N$ holds for all $P \in \Sper_T(A)$.
(2)~~For all $f \in A$, if $N+f, N-f \in T$ for some integer $N$,
then $f \in \R$. This is in sharp contrast with the
Schm\"udgen-W\"ormann result that for any preordering $T$ in a
finitely generated $\R$-algebra $A$, if property~(1) holds, then
for any $f \in A$, $f > 0$ on $\Sper_T(A) \Rightarrow f \in T$.
Also, adjoining to $A$ the square roots of the generators of $T$
yields a larger ring $C$ with these same two properties but with
$\Sigma C^2$ (the set of sums of squares) as the preordering.
