# Questions tagged [toric-geometry]

For questions related to toric geometry. The objects of study in toric geometry are toric varieties. Toric varieties are called ‘toric’ because they are equipped with a ‘torus action’. By a torus we mean the linear algebraic group $C^∗ ×\dots× C^∗$, not the torus from topology. A toric variety contains a torus as an open subset and this defines the torus action.

### Is this toric variety the blowup of $\mathbb C^2$ at some point?

Let $u_1=e_1,\quad u_0=e_1+2e_2,\quad u_2=e_2$. Consider the fan consisting of the following cones $\sigma_1= \langle u_1,u_0\rangle$, $\sigma_2=\langle u_0,u_2\rangle$ and their faces. Then the toric ...

### Does this theorem hold for real part of a toric variety? + Reference request - Real toric varieties.

Let $X$ be a complex toric variety and let $X_\mathbb R$ be its real part, that is the $X_\mathbb R$ consists of all the real valued points of $X$. I would like to learn a little more about the ...
