Abstract:


Koiran's real $\tau$-conjecture asserts that if a non-zero real polynomial can be written as $f=\sum_{i=1}^{p}\prod_{j=1}^{q}f_{ij}$, where each $f_{ij}$ contains at most $k$ monomials, then the number of distinct real roots of $f$ is polynomial in $pqk$. We show that the conjecture implies quite a strong property of the complex roots of $f$: their arguments are uniformly distributed except for an error which is polynomial in $pqk$. That is, if the conjecture is true, $f$ has degree $n$ and $f(0)\not=0$, then
for every $00$ and $\beta<\phi <\alpha$, counted with multiplicities.
In particular, if the real $\tau$-conjecture is true, it is also true when multiplicities of non-zero real roots are included.
