The signature(s) of the curvature of the zero set V of a free (non-commutative) polynomial is defined as the number of positive and negative eigenvalues of the non-commutative second fundamental form on V determined by p. With some natural hypotheses, the degree of p is bounded in terms of the signature. In particular, if one of the signatures is zero, then the degree of p is at most two.

We consider symmetric polynomials, p, in the noncommutative free variables (x_1, x_2, ..., x_g). We define the noncommutative complex hessian of p and we call a noncommutative symmetric polynomial

Abstract We consider symmetric polynomials, p, in the noncommutative (nc) free variables { x 1 , x 2 , … , x g } . We define the nc complex hessian of p as the second directional derivative

Let \$\Rx\$ denote the ring of polynomials in \$g\$ freely non-commuting variables \$x=(x_1,...,x_g)\$. There is a natural involution * on \$\Rx\$ determined by \$x_j^*=x_j\$ and \$(pq)^*=q^* p^*\$ and a free
