Title Introduction To Toric Geometry
Speaker Umar Shahzad

Toric varieties become very famous among the algebraic geometric community after its first formal introduction by Demazure. One can think toric variety as __ fibration over some certain special region in __. The simplest example that one can think is a sphere as circles fibred over an interval in _. In this talk, I will discuss the basics of toric geometry, and how we can construct toric varieties using the strongly convex rational polyhedral cones. I will demonstrate a certain class of toric varieties known as toric Calabi Yau threefolds.
