H. Gulzar Department of Mathematics University of Kashmir, Srinagar 190006 Abstract: In this paper we locate zero-free regions of polynomials when their coefficients are restricted to certain conditions. Mathematics Subject Classification: 30C10, 30C15 Keywords and phrases: Coefficient, Polynomial, Zero. I. INTRODUCTION AND STATEMENT OF RESULTS The problem of finding the regions containing all or some or no zero of a polynomial is very important in the theory of polynomials. In this connection, a lot of papers have been published by various researchers (e.g. see 1,2,3,4,5,6). Recently, M. H. Gulzar [5] proved the following results: Theorem A: Let Let P ( z )   a z j 0 j j be a polynomial o f degree n such that Re( a j )   j , Im( a j )   j and for some positive integers  ,  and for some real numbers k1 , k 2 ,  1 ,  2 ;0  k1  1,0  k 2  1,0   1  1,0   2  1, k1 n   n1  ......   1       1  ......  1   1 0 k 2  n   n1  ......   1       1  ...... 1   1  0 . z Then the number of zeros of P(z) in R ( R  0, c  1) does not exceed c M 1 log 1 , where log c a0 M 1  an R n1  a0  R n [  n   n  k1 (  n   n )  k 2 (  n   n )       ]  R  [    1 (  0   0 )   0 ]  R  [    2 (  0   0 )   0 ] for R  1 and M 1  an R n1  a0  R n [  n   n  k1 (  n   n )  k 2 (  n   n )       ]  R[       1 (  0   0 )   2 (  0   0 )   0   0 ] for R  1 . Theorem B: Let Let P ( z )   a z j 0 j j be a polynomial o f degree n such that Re( a j )   j , Im( a j )   j and for some positive integers  ,  ,  ,  and for some real numbers k1 , k 2 , k 3 , k 4 ; 1 ,  2 ,  3 ,  4 ;0  k1  1,0  k 2  1,0  k 3  1,0  k 4  1 0   1  1,0   2  1,0   3  1,0   4  1 , k1 k 2 k3  k2  n 2[ ] 2  ......  2  2   2   ......  2   1 0 n 2[ ]1 2 n 2[ ] 2  ......  2  1   2  1  ......  3   2 1  ......  2   2   2   ......  2   3  0 n 2[ ]1 2  ......  2 1   2 1  ......  3   4  1 . . 41
