**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.
