### Polynomials that preserve nonnegativity

A polynomial $p \in \mathbb{R}[x_1,\dots,x_n]$ is said to be positive on a subset $S$ of $\mathbb{R}^n$ if $p(x) > 0$ for every $x \in S$. The polynomial $p$ is called nonnegative if $p(x) \ge 0$ ...

### Cross sections of semialgebric sets

Let $n$ be bigger than two, and let $A$ be a subset of the $n$-dimensional Euclidean space.
Suppose that the intersection of $A$ with any $(n-1)$-dimensional affine hyperplane is semialgebraic.
