We determine the expected curvature polynomial of real projective varieties given as the zero set of independent random polynomials with Gaussian distribution, which is invariant under the orthogonal group. In particular, the expected Euler characteristic of such random real projective varieties is found. This considerably extends previously known results on the number of roots, the volume, and the Euler characteristic of the real solution set of random polynomial equations. To cite this article: P. Bürgisser, C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris, Ser. I 345 (2007).

Dans cet article, nous déterminons lʼespérance du polynôme de courbure dʼune variété projective réelle qui est donnée comme ensemble de zéros de polynômes aléatoires, avec une distribution gaussienne qui est invariante par le groupe orthogonal. En particulier, nous explicitons la caractéristique dʼEuler de telles variétés projectives réelles aléatoires. Ces résultats généralisent considérablement la connaissance du nombre de zéros, du volume, et de la caractéristique dʼEuler, des ensembles de zéro des systèmes de polynômes aléatoires.
