Algebraic structure of the range of a trigonometric polynomial

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The range of a trigonometric polynomial with complex coefficients can be interpreted as the image of the unit circle under a Laurent polynomial. We show that this range is contained in a real algebraic subset of the complex plane. Although the containment may be proper, the difference between the two sets is finite, except for polynomials with a certain symmetry.
