Suppose we have the following function $f:\mathbb{R}^{+}\mapsto \mathbb{R}$ $$f(t)=\sum_{i=1}^k P_i(t)\exp(\alpha_i t),$$ where $\alpha_i$s are all algebraic numbers and $P_i(t)$ are all polynomials with algebraic coefficients and degree less than $m$.

There are several questions that I am interested in.

a. What is the maximal number $p$ such that there is a $t_0$ and for all $r\leq p$ $$f^{(r)}(t_0)=0.$$ b. Suppose $t_1,\cdots,t_q,\cdots$ are the real roots of $f(t)=0$, is it possible to have a converging sequence of $t_q$? In other words, is it possible to have Cauchy sequence $t_i$ such that $f(t_i)=0$? If not, do we have a lower bound of the distance between different roots?

c.Is there an algorithm to decide whether there is some common real root of $f(t)$ and $f'(t)$?
