Toric Geometry II – Toric Varieties

Last time we did a bunch of stuff with fans and polytopes and made a lot of definitions. This time, we get to use that stuff to do some algebraic geometry. First up, we’ll need to define some lattice in … Continue reading

Toric Geometry I – Definitions

Ok, so I’m going to mostly be posting on toric geometry for the near future, and in particular, working out what we need to do some mirror symmetry with it. I’ll be following various things by David Cox, so check … Continue reading
