The present thesis has three main topics: geometry of coamoebas, hypergeometric functions, and geometry of zeros.

First, we study the coamoeba of a Laurent polynomial *f* in *n* complex variables. We define a simpler object, which we call the *lopsided coamoeba*, and associate to the lopsided coamoeba an *order map*. That is, we give a bijection between the set of connected components of the complement of the closed lopsided coamoeba and a finite set presented as the intersection of an affine lattice and a certain zonotope. Using the order map, we then study the topology of the coamoeba. In particular, we settle a conjecture of M. Passare concerning the number of connected components of the complement of the closed coamoeba in the case when the Newton polytope of *f* has at most *n+2* vertices.

In the second part we study hypergeometric functions in the sense of Gel'fand, Kapranov, and Zelevinsky. We define Euler-Mellin integrals, a family of Euler type hypergeometric integrals associated to a coamoeba. As opposed to previous studies of hypergeometric integrals, the explicit nature of Euler-Mellin integrals allows us to study in detail the dependence of *A*-hypergeometric functions on the homogeneity parameter of the *A*-hypergeometric system. Our main result is a complete description of this dependence in the case when *A* represents a toric projective curve.

In the last chapter we turn to the theory of real univariate polynomials. The famous Descartes' rule of signs gives necessary conditions for a pair *(p,n)* of integers to represent the number of positive and negative roots of a real polynomial. We characterize which pairs fulfilling Descartes' conditions are realizable up to degree 7, and we provide restrictions valid in arbitrary degree.
