A homogeneous real polynomial p is hyperbolic with respect to a given vector d if the univariate polynomial t → p(x − td) has all real roots for all vectors x. Motivated by partial differential equations, Gårding proved in 1951 that the largest such root is a convex function of x, and showed various ways of constructing new hyperbolic polynomials. We present a powerful new such construction, and use it to generalize Gårding's result to arbitrary symmetric functions of the roots.
