Convex Bodies and Algebraic Geometry
by Tadao Oda
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.

Introduction to algebraic geometry for students with an education in theoretical physics, to help them to master the basic algebraic geometric tools necessary for algebraically integrable systems and the geometry of quantum field and string theory.
by M. Douglas, J. Gauntlett, M. Gross - American Mathematical Society
This volume highlights the interface between string theory and algebraic geometry. The topics covered include manifolds of special holonomy, supergravity, supersymmetry, D-branes, the McKay correspondence and the Fourier-Mukai transform.

This book combines foundational constructions in the theory of motives and results relating motivic cohomology to more explicit constructions. Prerequisite for understanding the work is a basic background in algebraic geometry.

The scope of these notes is to present a soft and practical introduction to algebraic geometry, i.e. with very few algebraic requirements but arriving soon to deep results and concrete examples that can be obtained 'by hand'.
