Arithmetic geometry of toric varieties. metrics, measures and heights

  title={Arithmetic geometry of toric varieties. metrics, measures and heights},
  author={Jos{\'e} I. Burgos Gil and Patrice Philippon and Mart{\'i}n Sombra},
  journal={arXiv: Algebraic Geometry},
We show that the height of a toric variety with respect to a toric metrized line bundle can be expressed as the integral over a polytope of a certain adelic family of concave functions. To state and prove this result, we study the Arakelov geometry of toric varieties. In particular, we consider models over a discrete valuation ring, metrized line bundles, and their associated measures and heights. We show that these notions can be translated in terms of convex analysis, and are closely related…

Heights of Toric Varieties
We show that the toric local height of a toric variety with respect to a toric semipositive metrized line bundle over an arbitrary non-Archimedean field can be written as the integral over a polytope
Sharp bounds on the height of K-semistable toric Fano varieties
. Inspired by Fujita’s algebro-geometric result that complex projective space has maximal degree among all K-semistable Fano varieties, we conjecture that the height of a K-semistable metrized
b-divisors on toric and toroidal embeddings
In this thesis we develop an intersection theory of toric and toroidal b-divisors on toric and toroidal embeddings, respectively. Our motivation comes from wanting to establish an arithmetic
Heights of Toric Varieties, Entropy and Integration over Polytopes
A dictionary between arithmetic geometry of toric varieties and convex analysis allows for effective computations of arithmetic invariants of these varieties, and gives a number of new values for the height of torica varieties with respect to interesting metrics arising from polytopes.

For a cycle of codimension 1 in a toric variety, its degree with respect to a nef toric divisor can be understood in terms of the mixed volume of the polytopes associated to the divisor and to the
Arithmetic Okounkov bodies and positivity of adelic Cartier divisors
. In algebraic geometry, theorems of K¨uronya and Lozovanu characterize the ampleness and the nefness of a Cartier divisor on a projective variety in terms of the shapes of its associated Okounkov
Successive minima of toric height functions
Given a toric metrized R-divisor on a toric variety over a global field, we give a formula for the essential minimum of the associated height function. Under suitable positivity conditions, we also
Arithmetic positivity on toric varieties
We continue with our study of the arithmetic geometry of toric varieties. In this text, we study the positivity properties of metrized R-divisors in the toric setting. For a toric metrized R-divisor,
Successive minima and asymptotic slopes in Arakelov Geometry
Let X be a normal and geometrically integral projective variety over a global field K and let D be an adelic Cartier divisor on X. We prove a conjecture of Chen, showing that the essential minimum
Continuity of Plurisubharmonic Envelopes in Non-Archimedean Geometry and Test Ideals
Let L be an ample line bundle on a smooth projective variety X over a non-archimedean field K. For a continuous metric on L, we show in the following two cases that the semipositive envelope is a


Tropical varieties for non-archimedean analytic spaces
Generalizing the construction from tropical algebraic geometry, we associate to every (irreducible d-dimensional) closed analytic subvariety of $\mathbb{G}_{m}^{n}$ a tropical variety in ℝn with
Local and canonical heights of subvarieties
Classical results of Weil, Neron and Tate are generalized to local heights of subvarieties with respect to hermitian pseudo-divisors. The local heights are well-defined if the intersection of
Heights of projective varieties and positive Green forms
Using arithmetic intersection theory, a theory of heights for projective varieties over rings of algebraic integers is developed. These heights are generalizations of those considered by Weil,
Introduction to toric varieties
The course given during the School and Workshop “The Geometry and Topology of Singularities”, 8-26 January 2007, Cuernavaca, Mexico is based on a previous course given during the 23o Coloquio
In this article it is explained how to construct for a nonsingular model of a curve defined over a number field a theory analogous to the theory of divisors, and the intersection numbers of divisors,
Let V be a subvariety of a torus defined over the algebraic numbers. We give a qualitative and quantitative description of the set of points of V of height bounded by invariants associated to any
Toric degenerations of toric varieties and tropical curves
We show that the counting of rational curves on a complete toric variety that are in general position to the toric prime divisors coincides with the counting of certain tropical curves. The proof is
Okounkov bodies of filtered linear series
Abstract We associate to certain filtrations of a graded linear series of a big line bundle a concave function on its Okounkov body, whose law with respect to the Lebesgue measure describes the
Arithmetic toric varieties
We study toric varieties over a field k that split in a Galois extension K/k using Galois cohomology with coefficients in the toric automorphism group. Part of this Galois cohomology fits into an
