Rational functions and real Schubert calculus

Michael Shapiro

Abstract

We single out some Schubert calculus problems for subspaces of codimension 2 that have the property that all their solutions are real whenever the data are real. Our arguments explore the connection between subspaces of codimension 2 and rational functions of one variable.

This is joint work with A.Gabrielov, A.Eremenko, and A.Vainshtein.
