We study the derivatives of polynomials with equally spaced zeros and find connections to the values of the Riemann zeta-function at the positive even integers.

This book poses certain problems to a reviewer for the Gazette such as the fact that it is an expository account and the readers of the Gazette are professionals— but that’s OK, as most of them, even… Expand

A modest improvement of the theorem obtained by taking into account the multiplicities of the zeros of the polynomial by stating the original theorem as it appears in Gideon Peyser's theorem.Expand

If f is a polynomial with all of its roots on the real line, then the roots of the derivative f' are more evenly spaced than the roots of f. The same holds for a real entire function of order 1 with… Expand
