 This book exposes recent results about hyperbolic polynomials in one real variable, i.e. having all their roots real. It contains a study of the stratification and the geometric properties of the domain in \(\mathbb{R}^n\) of the values of the coefficients \(a_j\) for which the polynomial \(P:=x^n+a_1x^{n1}+\cdots +a_n\) is hyperbolic. Similar studies are performed w.r.t. very hyperbolic polynomials, i.e. hyperbolic and having hyperbolic primitives of any order, and w.r.t. stably hyperbolic ones, i.e. real polynomials of degree \(n\) which become hyperbolic after multiplication by \(x^k\) and addition of a suitable polynomial of degree \(k1\). New results are presented concerning the SchurSzegő composition of polynomials, in particular of hyperbolic ones, and of certain entire functions. The question about the arrangement of the \(n(n+1)/2\) roots of the polynomials \(P\), \(P^{(1)}, \ldots, P^{(n1)}\) is studied for \(n\leq 5\) with the help of the discriminant sets \(\mathrm{Res}(P^{(i)},P^{(j)})=0\).
