Abstract: We develop some basic tools to work with representable matroids of bounded tree-width and use them to prove that, for any prime power qq and constant kk, the characteristic polynomial of any loopless, GF(q)GF(q)-representable matroid with tree-width kk has no real zero greater than qk−1qk−1.
