# Geometry of Toric Varieties

Share this page *Edited by *

A publication of the Société Mathématique de France

Toric varieties form a beautiful class of algebraic varieties, which are often used as a testing ground for verifying general conjectures in algebraic geometry, for example, in Hilbert schemes, singularity theory, Mori theory, and so on.

This volume gathers expanded versions of lectures presented during the summer school of “Geometry of Toric Varieties” in Grenoble (France). These lectures were given during the second and third weeks of the school. (The first week was devoted to introductory material.) The paper by D. Cox is an overview of recent work in toric varieties and its applications, putting the other contributions of the volume into perspective.
