Critical points of a master function associated to a simple Lie algebra \(\mathfrak{g}\) come in families called the populations [11]. We prove that a population is isomorphic to the flag variety of the Langlands dual Lie algebra \(^t \mathfrak{g}\) . The proof is based on the correspondence between critical points and differential operators called the Miura opers.

For a Miura oper D, associated with a critical point of a population, we show that all solutions of the differential equation DY=0 can be written explicitly in terms of critical points composing the population.
