**Lectures on Torus Embeddings and Applications**

by Tadao Oda

**Publisher**: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1978**ISBN/ASIN**: 0387088520**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.
