Theme: The concept of copositivity can be traced back to Theodore Motzkin in 1952, and that of complete positivity to Marshal Hall Jr. in 1958. The two classes of matrices are related, and both have received considerable attention in the linear algebra community over the years, and in the last two decades also in the mathematical optimization community. They also arise naturally in various applications. In this minisymposium we bring together people working on these classes of matrices from all these angles: linear algebra, optimization, and other applications, such as machine learning and quantum information.
