Abstract

In this work we study the Positive Extension property and Hilbert's 17th problem for real analytic germs and sets. A real analytic germ X 0 of has the property if every positive semidefinite analytic function germ on X 0 has a positive semidefinite analytic extension to ; analogously one states the property for a global real analytic set X in an open set Ω of ℝ n . These properties are natural variations of Hilbert's 17th problem. Here, we prove that: (1) A real analytic germ has the property if and only if every positive semidefinite analytic function germ on X 0 is a sum of squares of analytic function germs on X 0; and (2) a global real analytic set X of dimension ≦ 2 and local embedding dimension ≦ 3 has the property if and only if it is coherent and all its germs have the property. If that is the case, every positive semidefinite analytic function on X is a sum of squares of analytic functions on X. Moreover, we classify the singularities with the property.
