### A sine type Chebyshev system

A sequence of real functions $\{\phi_1,\cdots,\phi_n\}$ is called a Chebyshev system on an interval $I\subseteq\mathbb{R}$, if any real linear combination $\sum_{l=1}^n a_l\phi_l$ has at most $n-1$ ...

### Testing whether $e^x+ax^2+bx+c$ has a zero

What is the simple test with exponential polynomials to determine whether $$f(x)=e^x+ax^2+bx+c$$ has a positive zero? This was prompted by the question about discriminants here. We have an ineffective ...

### Real root isolation for exponential polynomials

Suppose we are given an exponential polynomial $f:\mathbb{R}\mapsto\mathbb{R}$ $$f(t)=\sum_{i=1}^n p_i(t)e^{\lambda_i t}$$ where $p_i(t)$s are polynomials with algebraic coefficients and $\lambda_i$...

### Linear independence of exponentials

Let $X$ be the set of functions $e^{p(x)}$ of the real vector $x$, where $p$ is a multivariate polynomial with $p(0)=0$. Is any finite subset of $X$ linearly independent? If yes, why? If no, is the ...

### Identities for powers of functions based on generalization of Lagrange interpolation

Lagrange polynomial can be used to obtain an identity: $$(k+t)^n = \sum_{i=0}^n (k+d_i)^n \prod_{\substack{j=0\\ j\not=i}}^n \frac{t-d_j}{d_i-d_j},$$ which holds for any integer $n>0$, any real ...
