Abstract: We study the differential symmetric signature, an invariant of rings of finite type over a field, introduced in a previous work by the authors in an attempt to find a characteristic-free analogue of the F-signature. We compute the differential symmetric signature for invariant rings $k[x_1,\dots ,x_n]^G$, where $G$ is a finite small subgroup of GL$(n,k)$, and for hypersurface rings $k[x_1,\dots ,x_n]/(f)$ of dimension $\geq 3$ with an isolated singularity. In the first case, we obtain the value $1/|G|$, which coincides with the F-signature and generalizes a previous result of the authors for the two-dimensional case. In the second case, following an argument by Bruns, we obtain the value $0$, providing an example of a ring where differential symmetric signature and F-signature are different.
