In the study of weighted polynomials on the real line, a fundamental role is played by certain measures which are solutions of some electrostatical equilibrium problem. It is shown here that the same measures also arise as the contact pressures in certain contact problems from elasticity theory. This second physical model adds to the understanding of the… CONTINUE READING
