Building on the influential ideas of Baker and Montgomery, we discuss progress related to the following three problems:
1) how many real zeros does a typical Fekete polynomial (with coefficients being Legendre symbol) have?
2) How many times does the sum ∑n≤N χD(n) change sign for a typical quadratic character χD?
3) How many real zeros does the theta function have?
The talk will be based on a joint work with Y. Lamzouri and M. Munsch.
