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 isomorphism of the standard lattice % MathType!MTEF!2!1!+-% feaafiart1ev1aaatCvAUfeBSjuyZL2yd9gzLbvyNv2CaerbuLwBLn% hiov2DGi1BTfMBaeXatLxBI9gBaerbd9wDYLwzYbItLDharqqtubsr% 4rNCHbGeaGqiVu0Je9sqqrpepC0xbbL8F4rqqrFfpeea0xe9Lq-Jc9% vqaqpepm0xbba9pwe9Q8fs0-yqaqpepae9pg0FirpepeKkFr0xfr-x% fr… Expand
A bound for the splitting of smooth Fano polytopes with many vertices
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 thatExpand
Toward the classification of higher-dimensional toric Fano varieties
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. ByExpand
On a Classification of Smooth Fano Polytopes
The d -dimensional simplicial, terminal, and reflexive polytopes with at least 3d-2 vertices are classified. In particular, it turns out that all of them are smooth Fano polytopes. This improvesExpand

Fano 4-folds having a prime divisor of Picard number 1
Fano varieties (over C) have been thoroughly classified up to dimension 3, and are widely studied also in higher dimensions. They act an important role in the Minimal Model Program, since they appearExpand
Toric Fano varieties and convex polytopes
In this thesis we study toric Fano varieties. Toric varieties are a particular class of algebraic variety which can be described in terms of combinatorial data. Toric Fano varieties correspond toExpand
On the birational geometry of Fano 4-folds
We study the birational geometry of a Fano fourfold X from the point of view of Mori dream spaces; more precisely, we study rational contractions of X. Here a rational contraction is a rational mapExpand
A Characterization of Some Fano 4-folds Through Conic Fibrations
We find a characterization for Fano 4-folds $X$ with Lefschetz defect $\delta _{X}=3$: besides the product of two del Pezzo surfaces, they correspond to varieties admitting a conic bundle structureExpand
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 haveExpand

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
