Investigating positivity of polynomials over the complex unit disc is a relevant problem in electrical and computer engineering. This paper provides two sufficient and necessary conditions for solving this problem via linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). These conditions are obtained by exploiting trigonometric transformations, a key tool for the representation of polynomials, and results from the theory of positive polynomials. Some numerical examples illustrate the proposed conditions.
