### Sufficient condition for real roots of a polynomial of order $n>5$ with arbitrary real coefficients

I ask for help in solving the problem. I am developing an optimization program that selects the coefficients of a polynomial of order $n> 5$ so that all its zeros are just real numbers. And I ...

### Finding the roots of a function like $3+\cos(x)+0.005/(x-a)$?

I have a blackbox function that (for the purposes of this question) looks like $3+\cos(x) + 0.005/(x-a)$. The location of this $a$ is unknown (but within $0\to2\pi$). (The $3+\cos(x)$ is just a (bad) ...

### What is an efficient way to calculate zeros of Bessel functions?

One approach is the brute force method of evaluating at all points at fixed intervals and when it nears zero write value, this can be combined with adaptive step size. Another approach is ...

### Robust ways to find zeros of the Tricomi confluent hypergeometric function as a function of its parameters

I'm solving a quantum mechanical problem, and the quantization condition requires me to solve the equation $$U\left(\frac12(\ell+1-E), \ell+1, r^2\right) = 0,$$ where $U(a,b,z)$ is the confluent ...
