Abstract: We derive several new results on the asymptotic behavior of the roots of random polynomial equations, including conditions under which the distributions of the zeros of certain random polynomials tend to the uniform distribution on the circumference of a circle centered at the origin. We also derive a probabilistic analog of the Cauchy-Hadamand theorem that enables us to obtain the radius of convergence of a random power series.
