Algebraic geometry is the geometric study of sets of solutions to polynomial equations over a field (or ring). In this book the author maintains a reasonable balance between rigor and intuition; so it retains the informal quality of lecture notes.

Theory of torus embeddings has find many applications. The point of the theory lies in its ability of translating meaningful algebra-geometric phenomena into very simple statements about the combinatorics of cones in affine space over the reals.

The scope of these notes is to present a soft and practical introduction to algebraic geometry, i.e. with very few algebraic requirements but arriving soon to deep results and concrete examples that can be obtained 'by hand'.

These notes develop the theory of algebraic curves from the viewpoint of modern algebraic geometry, but without excessive prerequisites. It assumed that the reader is familiar with some basic properties of rings, ideals, and polynomials.
