Linear operators preserving non-vanishing properties are an important tool in e.g. combinatorics, the Lee-Yang program on phase transitions, complex analysis, matrix theory. We characterize all linear operators on spaces of multivariate polynomials preserving the property of being non-vanishing when all variables are in a prescribed open circular domain, which solves the higher dimensional counterpart of a long-standing classification problem going back to Pólya-Schur. This leads to a self-contained theory of multivariate stable polynomials and a natural framework for dealing with Lee-Yang and Heilmann-Lieb type problems in a uniform manner. The talk is based on joint work with Petter Brändén.
