Abstract: Let $\displaystyle{p(z)}$ be a complex polynomial of degree $\displaystyle{n}$ having $\displaystyle{k}$ zeros in a disk $\displaystyle{D}$. We deal with the problem of finding the smallest concentric disk containing $\displaystyle{k-l}$ zeros of $\displaystyle{p^{(l)}(z)}$. We obtain some estimates on the radius of this disk in general as well as in the special case, where $\displaystyle{k}$ zeros in $\displaystyle{D}$ are isolated from the other zeros of $\displaystyle{p(z)}$. We indicate an application to the root-finding algorithms.
