Toric Geometry and Related Topics

Teacher :Zong Zhengyu
Schedule: Mon 15:20-16:55 & Fri 13:30-15:05, 2020-2-17 ~ 5-8
Venue:Conference Room 3, Jin Chun Yuan West Bldg.


I will start from the basic geometric and combinatorial aspects of toric varieties. Then I will discuss various properties of toric varieties including the singularities and compactness, torus action, topology, line bundles and divisors, moment maps, cohomology, and intersection theory. If there is enough time, I will also discuss the relation between toric varieties and mathematical physics.
