Algebraic Geometry Working Seminar

"An introduction to toric varieties"

Toric varieties are a special kind of variety equipped with a group action from an algebraic torus. These varieties are very nice to work with because they have a combinatorial interpretation involving polyhedral geometry. I will (very quickly) introduce toric varieties and focus on some concrete examples.

The seminar will meet on Zoom.
