polynomial root distribution
We consider the polynomial $f_k(z) = z^k-z^{k-1}-\cdots -z-1$ for $k\ge 2$ which arises as the characteristic polynomial of the $k$-generalized Fibonacci sequence. In this short paper, we give estimates for the absolute values of the roots of $f_k(z)$ which lie inside the unit disk.
