32nd Autumn School in Algebraic Geometry

Algebraic torus actions

Lukecin, Poland, September 6th - September 12th, 2009

Teachers: Klaus Altmann (Freie University, Berlin) and Juergen Hausen (University of Tuebingen)

Abstract: In the first part of the course we gave an introduction to the theory of toric varieties, i.e., varieties that are almost homogeneous under an algebraic torus action. In the second part, we turned to more general aspects of algebraic torus actions, such as Geometric Invariant Theory, Cox rings and polyhedral divisors.

Program: each morning 2 lectures, 90 min each, by Klaus Altmann (KA) and Juergen Hausen (JH) followed by 90 min excercise session in the afternoon and contributed talks in the evening. The following is a list of titles of lectures:


Organizer: Jaroslaw Wisniewski, Institute of Mathematics, Warsaw University.
