Description:
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.

by - Cambridge University Press
The 1992/93 year at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute was devoted to Complex Algebraic Geometry. This volume collects articles that arose from this event, which took place at a time when algebraic geometry was undergoing a major change.
