### The canonical line bundle of a normal variety

I have heard that the canonical divisor can be defined on a normal variety X since the smooth locus has codimension 2. Then, I have heard as well that for ANY algebraic variety such that the canonical ...

### About a Delzant polytope. (In particular dodecahedron)

Hi. I have a question.
Definition. Delzant polytope $P$ is a rational convex simple polytope with the smooth condition. Here, "smooth" means that for each vertex $v$, the $n$ edges containing $v$ ...

### Toric Fano manifolds with Picard number 1

As far as I know, toric Fano manifolds are classified only up to dimension 4. In dimension one the projective line is the only example. In dimension two we have five examples: $\mathbb P ^2$, $\mathbb ...

### Bound on the (anticanonical) degree of toric Fano varieties

Does there exists a universal constant $C \geq 1$ such that if $X$ is any a smooth, toric, Fano $n$-dimensional manifold admitting a Kähler-Einstein metric, then its anticanonical degree $(-K_X)^n$ ...

### Is there an extremal metric on toric Fano manifolds which have nonzero Futaki invariant?

According the work by Wang & Zhu, on toric Fano manifolds there exist Kaehler-Ricci solitons. If Futaki=0, there also exist CSCK metrics. But if the Futaki invariant does not vanish, what about ...

### Number of $(-1)$ curves on toric surfaces

Hello.
My question is:
Is it possible that a smooth complete toric surface has infinitely many $(-1)$-curves. I know that there is a blow-up of $\mathbb P^2$ in 9 points containing infintely many $(-...

### Descent of flatness from algebras to monoids II

This is a follow-up question to this one. There, Benjamin Steinberg showed that a morphism of commutative monoids $u$ need not be flat if the induced morphism of $R$-algebras $R[u]$ is flat for some ...

### Locally toric resolutions of compactifications

Suppose $U$ is a smooth, open $n$-dimensional variety over $\mathbb{C}.$ Say $X, X'$ are two proper normal-crossings compactifications of $U$. Call a map $m: X'\to X$ a modification if it is an ...
