A generalization of the space of complete quadrics
To any homogeneous polynomial h we naturally associate a variety Ωh which maps birationally onto the graph Γh of the gradient map ∇h and which agrees with the space of complete quadrics when h is the determinant of the generic symmetric matrix. We give a sufficient criterion for Ωh being smooth which applies for example when h is an elementary symmetric polynomial. In this case Ωh is a smooth toric variety associated to a certain generalized permutohedron. We also give examples when Ωh is not smooth.
