“On the Shapiro and Shapiro conjecture”





Alexandre Degtyarev

 (Bilkent University)






Abstract: The original conjecture states that a map from P^1 to P^n
whose all flattening points are real is itself `essentially' real. We will
discuss various ramifications and generalizations of this statement.
