Let T be a linear operator which maps polynomials of degree n to polynomials of degree n , for every n . We discuss the problem of trying to characterize the set of all such operators which satisfy

$Z _ I(p) \le Z _ J(Tp)$

for every real-valued polynomial p , where $Z _ I$ counts the number of zeros on the interval I of ℝ.
