"On the polynomial moment problem"

Abstract: In the recent series of papers of M. Briskin, J.-P. Francoise and Y. Yomdin, the following "polynomial moment problem" was proposed as an infinitesimal version of the center problem for the Abel differential equation in the complex domain:

For a complex polynomial P(z) and distinct complex numbers a and b such that P(a)=P(b), describe polynomials q(z) orthogonal to all powers of P(z) on the segments [a,b].

In the lecture we present some new results concerning the polynomial moment problem and discuss some related topics.

Light refreshments will be served in the faculty lounge at 3:30.
