The relative positions of the graphs of univariate polynomials

The purpose of this talk is to understand a recent result obtained by Etienne Ghys, namely: which are the permutations obtained by intersecting the graphs of a family of polynomials in one real variable that pass through a common zero at the origin. We will discover surprising connections between different geometric and combinatorial objects.
