Abstract: The minimum root separation of an arbitrary polynomial P is defined as the minimum of the distances between distinct (real or complex) roots of P. Some asymptotically good lower bounds for the root separation of P are given, where P may have multiple zeros. There are applications in the analysis of complexity of algorithms and in the theory of algebraic and transcendental numbers.
