The Lasserre hierarchy of semide nite programming approximations to convex polynomial optimization problems is known to converge nitely under some assumptions. [J.B. Lasserre. Convexity in semialgebraic geometry and polynomial optimization. SIAM J. Optim. 19, 1995{2014,2009.] We give a new proof of the nite convergence property, under weaker assumptions than were known before. In addition, we show that | under the assumptions for nite convergence | the number of steps needed for convergence depends on more than the input size of the problem.
