A Sample of Lower Bounds in Algebraic Complexity

We will see some lower bounds for restricted classes of arithmetic circuits, including monotone circuits and multilinear formulas. (Over the reals) a circuit is monotone if it only uses nonnegative real constants. A circuit is multilinear if the syntactic degree with respect to every variable is 1.
