Convex Bodies and Algebraic Geometry

Publisher: Springer 1988
Number of pages: 219
The theory of toric varieties (also called torus embeddings) describes a fascinating interplay between algebraic geometry and the geometry of convex figures in real affine spaces. This book is a unified up-to-date survey of the various results and interesting applications found since toric varieties were introduced in the early 1970's.

The purpose of this text is to give an introduction to Grothendieck's theory of the fundamental group in algebraic geometry with the study of the fundamental group of an algebraic curve over an algebraically closed field of arbitrary characteristic.
