Introduction to Toric Varieties

İlayda Barış


Abstract: The aim of the talk is to give a brief introduction to toric varieties which have strong connections with polyhedral geometry, combinatorics, commutative algebra, and topology. Due to its concreteness, the study of toric varieties serves as a good encounter with the techniques of modern algebraic geometry. We will try to establish some bridges between algebraic geometry and combinatorics via toric varieties. If time permits we will give an overview of generalizations of toric varieties and situate their theory in the context of combinatorial algebraic geometry.
