Of the geometric figures in a given family satisfying real conditions, some figures are real while the rest occur in complex conjugate pairs, and the distribution of the two types depends subtly upon the configuration of the conditions. Despite this difficulty, applications ([7],[28],[32]) may demand real solutions. Fulton [11] asked how many solutions of an enumerative problem can be real, and we consider a special case of his question: Given a problem of enumerative geometry, are there real… CONTINUE READING
