Positive roots of a polynomial
@Greg Martin: $n=1$ does not satisfy the condition that not all $a_i$'s are equal. For $n=2$ we get $p(x)=\frac{1}{2} \left(a_1-a_2\right){}^2 x^2-\frac{1}{2} a_1 \left(a_1-a_2\right){}^2 a_2$ and so clearly the only positive root is $x_0=\sqrt{a_1 a_2}$. For $n=3$ I don't know already... |

@Seva some numerical evidence, I'll add this to the question |

Is the following conjecture regarding rotational iterates of collection of points on a circle true?
@Anthony Quas: This comes from estimating condition numbers of Vandermonde matrices with nodes on the circle. |

Since your rescale everything to $[0,1)$, I think $\alpha$ should be multiplied by $\pi$. Also, could you please provide more intuition regarding the usage of the Dirichlet principle? Thanks! |

Inverse of matrix of generalised harmonic numbers
@ChristianRemling: Unfortunately, this is not the case. $H^{-1}$ does have negative entries (as does the inverse of the Hilbert matrix), so even for a 2-by-2 case the matrix $H^{-1}R-I$ has $O(1)$ entries. |

Inverse of matrix of generalised harmonic numbers
@ChristianRemling: the problem is that one cannot write $R=H(I+O(1/n))$ in this case. Rather, $O(1/n)H$ stands for a matrix whose $i,j$-th entry is $O(1/n)$ times the $i,j$-th entry of $H$. |
