**Publisher**: Springer 1988**ISBN/ASIN**: 364272549X**ISBN-13**: 9783642725494**Number of pages**: 219

**Description**:

The theory of toric varieties (also called torus embeddings) describes a fascinating interplay between algebraic geometry and the geometry of convex figures in real affine spaces. This book is a unified up-to-date survey of the various results and interesting applications found since toric varieties were introduced in the early 1970's.

**Algebraic Geometry**

by

**J.S. Milne**

These notes are an introduction to the theory of algebraic varieties. In contrast to most such accounts they study abstract algebraic varieties, not just subvarieties of affine and projective space. This approach leads naturally to scheme theory.
