5. Zeros of derivatives

1. Problem 5.1.

[S. Edwards] Let $p\in\mathbb{R}[x]$, $\deg(p)=n>2$. There are at least $n-1$ points of extreme curvature $\kappa(p)$ ( more generally where $\kappa'(p)=0$ ) [MR2104693].
• Problem 5.2.

[A. Sokal] What are the zero spacing effects of higher order differential operators on functions which belong to $\mathcal{L}\text{-}\mathcal{P}$?
