Abstract:

We consider orthogonal polynomials on the unit circle and study the distribution of their zeros. We present various classes of polynomials which exhibit a regular “clock” distribution of zeros. We also consider orthogonal polynomials on the unit circle with independent identically distributed random recurrence coefficients and show that their zeros are distributed according to a Poisson process.
