On a property of real plane curves of even degree
F. Cukierman asked whether or not for every
smooth
real plane curve $X \subset \mathbb{P}^2$ of even degree $d \geqslant
2$
there exists a real line
$L \subset \mathbb{P}^2$ such $X \cap L$ has no real points.
We show that the answer is ``yes" if $d = 2$ or $4$ and ``no"
if $n \geqslant 6$.

A Representation Theorem for Archimedean Quadratic Modules on $*$Rings
We present a new approach to noncommutative real algebraic geometry
based on the representation theory of $C^\ast$algebras.
An important result in commutative real algebraic geometry is
Jacobi's representation theorem for archimedean quadratic modules
on commutative rings.
We show that this theorem is a consequence of the
GelfandNaimark representation theorem for commutative $C^\ast$algebras.
A noncommutative version of GelfandNaimark theory was studied by
I. Fujimoto. We use his results to generalize
Jacobi's theorem to associative rings with involution.
