The Geometry of Positive Semidefinite Rank

I will first define positive semidefinite rank and mention some of its applications. We study the set of matrices of given psd rank. This set is semialgebraic. As a first step to giving a semialgebraic description, we describe its boundary. This is ongoing work with Kaie Kubjas and Richard Robinson.
