We survey what is known about Fekete points/optimal designs for a simplex in R d . Several new results are included. The notion of Fejér exponenet for a set of interpolation points is introduced. In as is well known, the Chebyshev points provide an ex-cellent set of points for polynomial interpolation of functions deﬁned on the interval , 1] . In several the problem of ﬁnding analogues of such near optimal interpolation points is much more diﬃcult and each un-derlying set K ⊂ R d must be… Expand

We will denote the space of polynomials in n real variables by 2. .yj c .Y will bc those of total dcgrce at most d. Now suppose that E c R” is some set. Let I(E) := {p E 9’1 p is identically zero on… Expand

This work makes use of precise results of Pommerenke on the growth of the discriminant and on the distribution of the Fekete points, including the exterior Green function with pole at infinity.Expand

Using recent results of Berman and Boucksom (arXiv:0807.0035), we show that for a nonpluripolar compact set K⊂ℂd and an admissible weight function w=e−φ, any sequence of optimal measures converges… Expand

Let f1 , …, fk be linearly independent real functions on a space X, such that the range R of (f1, …, fk) is a compact set in k dimensional Euclidean space. (This will happen, for example, if the fi… Expand
