Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I have seen a proof that udw:1346599918682:dwses the idea that a quadratic y= a x^2 + bx +c is always positive for all values of x if its discriminate is negative: this means complex roots

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2use this idea with  a + x b^2 where a and b are vectors and x is a scalar this must always be positive for all values of x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2write the magnitude squared as a dot product  a + x b^2 ≥0 \[a^2 + 2(a \cdot b) x + b^2 x^2 ≥ 0\] as noted above, the discriminate of this quadratic in x must be negative to guarantee all values ≥ 0 for all x: \[ 4 (a \cdot b)^2 4 a^2 b^2 ≤ 0 \]
