## Determinantal representation of trigonometric polynomial curves via Sylvester method.(English)Zbl 1283.15025

Let, for an $$n \times n$$ complex matrix $$A$$, $$\; F_A(t,x,y) := \det(t \, I_n+x \, \mathfrak{R}(A)+y \, \mathfrak{I}(A))$$ denote the real ternary form associated with the matrix $$A$$, and let $\phi(\theta) = \sum_{k=-n}^n c_k \exp (ik\theta)$ be a trigonometric polynomial. Using Sylvester matrices, these authors present an algorithm to construct $$2n \times 2n$$ matrices $$C_1$$, $$C_2$$, $$C_3$$ such that, for a given trigonometric polynomial $$\phi(\theta),$$ $\det (C_1 + \mathfrak{R}(\phi(\theta)) C_2 + \mathfrak{I} (\phi(\theta)) C_3) = 0.$ If $$\phi$$ has the special form $$\phi(\theta) = \exp(in\theta) + a \exp(-im\theta)$$, $$0 \leq \theta \leq 2\pi$$, $$0 < m < n$$, $$0 < a < 1$$, then the matrices $$C_1$$, $$C_2$$, $$C_3$$ are Hermitian, $$C_1$$ is positive definite, and the relation $F_{C_0}(t,x,y) \det(C_1) = \det(tC_1+xC_2+yC_3),$ holds, where $$C_0 = C_1^{-1/2} (C_2+iC_3) C_1^{-1/2}.$$
