*Abstract:
This paper studies the representations of a non-negative polynomial f on a non-compact semi-algebraic
set K modulo its critical ideal. Under the assumption that the semi-algebraic set K is regular and f satisfies the boundary
Hessian conditions (BHC) at each zero of f in K. We show that f can be represented as a sum of squares (SOS)
of real polynomials modulo its critical ideal if f >= 0 on K. Particularly, we only work in the polynomial ring R[X].*
