For $r \geq 1$ and $\mathbf{n} \in \mathbb{Z}_{\geq0}^r\setminus\{\mathbf{0}\}$, we construct a proper complex variety $\overline{2M}_{\mathbf{n}}$. $\overline{2M}_{\mathbf{n}}$ is locally toric, and it is equipped with a forgetful map $\overline{2M}_{\mathbf{n}} \to \overline M_{0,r+1}$. This space is a compactification of $2M_{\mathbf{n}}$, the configuration space of marked vertical lines in $\mathbb{C}^2$ up to translations and dilations. In the appendices, we give several examples and show… Expand

Formal groups and quantum cohomology.
We use chain level genus zero Gromov-Witten theory to associate to any closed monotone symplectic manifold a formal group (loosely interpreted), whose Lie algebra is the odd degree cohomology of theExpand

Introduction to Toric Varieties.
Toric varieties are algebraic varieties arising from elementary geometric and combinatorial objects such as convex polytopes in Euclidean space with vertices on lattice points. Since many algebraicExpand
Binomial Ideals
We investigate the structure of ideals generated by binomials (polynomials with at most two terms) and the schemes and varieties associated to them. The class of binomial ideals contains manyExpand
