Descartes' rule for multivariate polynomials

Submitted by Insmi on Sat, 03/18/2017 - 14:20

Descartes' rule is one of the first main result of algebraic geometry. Formulated in 1637 in the appendix entitled "La Géométrie" of the famous "Discours de la Méthode" [S], this rule gives an upper bound of the number of positive roots of a polynomial of one real-valued variable. The formulation of a similar rule for multi-variate polynomials has gone through new developements with the works of Frédéric Bihan and his collaborators who propose in [BD] a new upper bound for the number of roots with positive coordinates.
