The functional calculus for functions of several variables associates to each tuple x = (xl, •••,.x fc) of selfadjomt operators on Hilbert spaces Hl9~-,Hk an operator/(.x) in the tensor product ^//j)® ••• ®B(Hk). We introduce the notion of generalized Hessian matrices associated with /. Those matrices are used as the building blocks of a structure theorem for the second Frechei differential of the map x-*f(x). As an application we derive that functions with positive semi-definite generalized… CONTINUE READING
