Abstract [en]

The well-known Hermite-Biehler theorem claims that a univariate monic polynomial s of degree k has all roots in the open upper half-plane if and only if s = p + iq, where p and q are real polynomials of degree k and k - 1 respectively with all real, simple and interlacing roots, and q has a negative leading coefficient. Considering roots of p as cyclically ordered on RP1 we show that the open disk in CP1 having a pair of consecutive roots of p as its diameter is the maximal univalent disk for the function R = q/p. This solves a special case of the so-called Hermite-Biehler problem.
