Title: Arithmetic geometry of toric varieties
Speaker: Patrice Philippon (CNRS, Paris, France)
Date: 22 November 2017
Time: 4 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department
We will present results obtained in collaboration with J. Burgos and M. Sombra. These extend the well known dictionary between the geometric properties of toric varieties and convex geometry. In particular, we give combinatorial descriptions of classical invariants of arithmetic geometry, such as metric, height or essential minimum.
