The classification of toric Fano manifolds with large Picard number corresponds to the classification of smooth Fano polytopes with large number of vertices. A smooth Fano polytope is a polytope that contains the origin in its interior and is such that the vertex set of each facet forms a lattice basis. Casagrande showed that any smooth d-dimensional Fano polytope has at most 3d vertices. Smooth Fano polytopes in dimension d with at least $$3d-2$$3d-2 vertices are completely known. The main…

Q-factorial Gorenstein toric Fano varieties with large Picard number
Q-factorial Gorenstein toric Fano varieties X of dimension d with Picard number rho(X) correspond to simplicial reflexive d-polytopes with rho(X)+d vertices. Casagrande showed that any simplicial
On the Picard number of divisors in Fano manifolds
Let X be a complex Fano manifold of arbitrary dimension, and D a prime divisor in X. We consider the image H of N_1(D) in N_1(X) under the natural push-forward of 1-cycles. We show that the
Smooth Fano Polytopes with Many Vertices
It turns out that all of the d-dimensional simplicial, terminal, and reflexive polytopes with at least 3d-2-2 vertices are smooth Fano poly topes.
Toric Fano varieties and birational morphisms
In this paper we study smooth toric Fano varieties using primitive relations and toric Mori theory. We show that for any irreducible invariant divisor D in a toric Fano variety X, we have

The purpose of this paper is to give basic tools for the classification of nonsingular toric Fano varieties by means of the notions of primitive collections and primitive relations due to Batyrev. By
An algorithm for the classification of smooth Fano polytopes
We present an algorithm that produces the classification list of smooth Fano d-polytopes for any given d. The input of the algorithm is a single number, namely the positive integer d. The algorithm

AbstractThe biregular classification of smoothd-dimensional toric Fano varieties is equivalent to the classification of special simplicial polyhedraP in ℝd, the so-called Fano polyhedra, up to an
Numerical invariants of Fano 4-folds

We consider families ${\cal F}(\Delta)$ consisting of complex $(n-1)$-dimensional projective algebraic compactifications of $\Delta$-regular affine hypersurfaces $Z_f$ defined by Laurent polynomials
Classification of toric Fano 5-folds
We obtain 866 isomorphism classes of five-dimensional nonsingular toric Fano varieties using a computer program and the database of four-dimensional reflexive polytopes. The algorithm is based on the
