Some polynomials with unimodular roots

Arturas Dubickas

In this paper we consider a sequence of polynomials defined by some recurrence relation. They include, for instance, Poupard polynomials and Kreweras polynomials whose coefficients have some combinatorial interpretation and have been investigated before. Extending a recent result of Chapoton and Han we show that each polynomial of this sequence is a self-reciprocal polynomial with positive coefficients whose all roots are unimodular. Moreover, we prove that their arguments are uniformly distributed in the interval $[0,2\pi)$.

Keywords: Self-reciprocal polynomials, unimodular roots, trigonometric polynomials
