Lectures on Torus Embeddings and Applications
by Tadao Oda
Publisher: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1978
Number of pages: 158
In recent years, the theory of torus embeddings has been finding many applications. The point of the theory lies in its ability of translating meaningful algebra-geometric and analytic phenomena into very simple statements about the combinatorics of cones in affine space over the reals.

This volume highlights the interface between string theory and algebraic geometry. The topics covered include manifolds of special holonomy, supergravity, supersymmetry, D-branes, the McKay correspondence and the Fourier-Mukai transform.

This book combines foundational constructions in the theory of motives and results relating motivic cohomology to more explicit constructions. Prerequisite for understanding the work is a basic background in algebraic geometry.

This book discusses two subjects of quite different nature: Construction methods for quotients of quasi-projective schemes by group actions or by equivalence relations and properties of direct images of certain sheaves under smooth morphisms.

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.
