The study of polynomials that are positive on certain sets has a rich history, going back to Hilbert's 17th problem.
Here we will look at multivariate polynomials (and more generally, trace polynomials) that have matrices as their variables. We construct expressions that are positive semidefinite whenever they are evaluated on the set of positive semidefinite matrices. This extends the concept of positive maps as used in entanglement theory to the
We make connections to quantum information and invariant theory.
