We construct and study the moduli of hypersurfaces in toric orbifolds. Let $X$ be a projective toric orbifold and $\alpha \in Cl(X)$ an ample class. The moduli space is constructed as a quotient of the linear system $|\alpha|$ by $G = Aut(X)$. Since the group $G$ is non-reductive in general, we use new techniques of non-reductive geometric invariant theory. Using the $A$-discriminant we prove semistability for certain toric orbifolds. Further, we show that quasismooth hypersurfaces in a…

An extension of polar duality of toric varieties and its consequences in Mirror Symmetry.

The present paper is dedicated to illustrating an extension of polar duality between Fano toric varieties to a more general duality, called \emph{framed} duality, so giving rise to a powerful method



On the Hodge structure of projective hypersurfaces in toric varieties

This paper generalizes classical results of Griffiths, Dolgachev and Steenbrink on the cohomology of hypersurfaces in weighted projective spaces. Given a $d$-dimensional projective simplicial toric

Partial desingularisations of quotients of nonsingular varieties and their Betti numbers

When a reductive group G acts linearly on a nonsingular complex projective variety X one can define a projective "quotient" variety X//G using Mumford's geometric invariant theory. If the condition

Projective completions of graded unipotent quotients

The aim of this paper is to show that classical geometric invariant theory has an effective analogue for linear actions of a non-reductive algebraic group $H$ with graded unipotent radical on a

The topology of smooth divisors and the arithmetic of abelian varieties.

We have three main results. First, we show that a smooth complex projective variety which contains three disjoint codimension-one subvarieties in the same homology class must be the union of a whole

Geometric Quotients of Unipotent Group Actions

Let G be a unipotent algebraic group over K (a field of characteristic 0) which acts rationally on an affine scheme X = Spec A over K, where A is a commutative K-algebra. The problem of finding

Towards non-reductive geometric invariant theory

We study linear actions of algebraic groups on smooth projective varieties X. A guiding goal for us is to understand the cohomology of "quotients" under such actions, by generalizing (from reductive

In this article we review the question of constructing geometric quotients of actions of linear algebraic groups on irreducible varieties over algebraically closed fields of characteristic zero, in

Geometric invariant theory for graded unipotent groups and applications

The Grothendieck-Lefschetz theorem for normal projective varieties

We prove that for a normal projective variety X in characteristic 0, and a base-point free ample line bundle L on it, the restriction map of divisor class groups Cl(X) → Cl(Y ) is an isomorphism for
