"A GIT construction for horospherical varieties"

David Cox developed a way of writing a given toric variety as a good quotient of a quasiaffine toric variety by a diagonalizable group. This construction has a very nice interpretation using the combinatorics of the toric varieties, i.e. their fans. I will give an outline of this construction through an example, and we will see how it can be generalized to horospherical varieties.
