16:640:535 - Algebraic Geometry I

Lev Borisov

Course Description:

Introduction to toric varieties. This will be a mixture between a topics and an introductory course in algebraic geometry. While some prior familiarity with schemes and/or differential geometry is useful, it is not required. We will cover affine toric varieties, projective spaces, fan construction, quotient singularities, resolutions of singularities, Picard group and other topics in toric geometry.
