"An introduction to horospherical varieties"

I will introduce horospherical varieties, which are a generalization of toric varieties. Similarly to toric varieties, these have a combinatorial description in terms of polyhedral geometry. I will outline the key parts from the combinatorial description for toric varieties, and we will see how to generalize these to the horospherical setting.
