Library of toric varieties

This module provides a simple way to construct often-used toric varieties. Please see the help for the individual methods of toric_varieties for a more detailed description of which varieties can be constructed.

AUTHORS:

  • Volker Braun (2010-07-02): initial version

EXAMPLES:

sage: toric_varieties.dP6()
2-d CPR-Fano toric variety covered by 6 affine patches

You can assign the homogeneous coordinates to Sage variables either with inject_variables() or immediately during assignment like this:

sage: P2.<x,y,z> = toric_varieties.P2()
sage: x^2 + y^2 + z^2
x^2 + y^2 + z^2
sage: P2.coordinate_ring()
Multivariate Polynomial Ring in x, y, z over Rational Field
class sage.schemes.toric.library.ToricVarietyFactory

Bases: sage.structure.sage_object.SageObject

The methods of this class construct toric varieties.

Warning

You need not create instances of this class. Use the already-provided object toric_varieties instead.
