Number of pages: 158

Description:
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.

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.
