We give sign conditions on the support and coefficients of a sparse system of d generalized polynomials in d variables that guarantee the existence of at least one positive real root, based on degree theory and Gale duality. In the case of integer exponents, we relate our sufficient conditions to algebraic conditions that emerged in the study of toric ideals.

Joint work with Frédéric Bihan (Université Savoie Mont Blanc) and Magalí Giaroli (Universidad de Buenos Aires).
