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 the cotangent bundle to $P^2$ a toric variety?

Is the cotangent bundle to the complex projective plane, $T^* P^2$, a toric variety? More generally, is there a criterion for when a vector bundle over a toric variety is a toric variety? For example,...

Is the quotient of a toric variety by a finite group still toric

Suppose $X$ is a toric variety with fan $\Sigma$, and the lattice of its torus is $N$. Suppose there is a representation of finite group $G$, \phi:G \rightarrow \text{GL}(N \otimes_{\...

Determining wall crossings in toric geometry

In toric geometry, we can describe manifolds by specifying a fan, which is roughly a collection of cones (of various dimensions) in an $n$-dimensional lattice. Many topological properties can be ...

whats wrong with this counterexample to closed subgroups of a Torus are a torus

In Cox Little and Schenck, one result that is cited in chapter two is that if $D_n$ is the $n-dimensional$ torus, and $H < D_n$ is a closed subgroup then $H$ is itself a torus. Let the underlying ...

Delzant theorem for polyhedra

Delzant theorem says that there is a 1-1 correspondence between compact toric symplectic manifolds (modulo equivariant symplectomorphism) and the Delzant polytopes (modulo lattice isomorphism). The ...

Conditions for evaluation morphisms $H^{0}(X, -K_X) \rightarrow k^n$ to be surjective.

Suppose I have a projective toric variety $X = X(N)$ (over a field $k$) associated to a polytope $N$, and I have $p_1,...,p_n \in D$ generically chosen points in the toric boundary $D$ of $X$. I am ...

What is wrong with this proof of $\operatorname{Cl}(X_\Sigma) \simeq \mathbb{Z}^{r-n}$?

This question is a bit urgent, as I have written this in my Master's thesis and I have to submit it next week! Proposition: Let $X_\Sigma$ be a toric variety without torus factors, meaning that the ...

A semigroup $\mathbb{N}\mathcal{A}$ is saturated in $M$ if and only if $\mathbb{N}\mathcal{A}=\text{Cone}(\mathcal{A})\cap M$

I'll first recall some definitions here for convenience. Given a finite set $S$ in a real vector space $V$, $$\text{Cone}(S)=\{\sum\limits_{u\in S} \lambda_u u\mid \lambda_u\geq 0\}.$$ An affine ...
