Zeros of random polynomials

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Norman Levenberg, Doron Lubinsky, Igor Pritsker, and Maxim Yattselev

Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to the zero distribution of random polynomials spanned by various deterministic bases. The prototypical classical example is the Kac polynomials, where the coefficients are i.i.d. real (or complex) Gaussian random variables, and the basis is given by standard monomials. Recent trends include studies of more general ensembles of random polynomials with non-Gaussian coefficients that are spanned by various polynomial bases, e.g., trigonometric and orthogonal polynomials.
