Toric Fano varieties are algebraic varieties associated with a special class of convex polytopes inR′'. We extend results of V. E. Voskresenskij and A. A. Klyachko about the classification of such varieties using a purely combinatorial method of proof.

Gorenstein toric Fano varieties
Abstract.We investigate Gorenstein toric Fano varieties by combinatorial methods using the notion of a reflexive polytope which appeared in connection to mirror symmetry. The paper contains
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
Frobenius splitting and Derived category of toric varieties
The splitting of the Frobenius direct image of line bundles on toric varieties is used to explicitly construct an orthogonal basis of line bundles in the derived category D^b(X) where X is a Fano

We investigate Gorenstein toric Fano varieties by combinatorial methods using the notion of a reflexive polytope which appeared in connection to mirror symmetry. The paper contains generalisations of
Centrally symmetric generators in toric Fano varieties
Abstract.We give a structure theorem for n-dimensional smooth toric Fano varieties whose associated polytope has ``many'' pairs of centrally symmetric vertices.
Frobenius splittings of toric varieties
We discuss a characteristic free version of Frobenius splittings for toric varieties and give a polyhedral criterion for a toric variety to be diagonally split. We apply this criterion to show that
Existence of Indecomposable Rank Two Vector Bundles on Higher Dimensional Toric Varieties
In the mid 1970s, Hartshorne conjectured that, for all n > 7, any rank 2 vector bundles on ℙ n is a direct sum of line bundles. This conjecture remains still open. In this paper, we construct
Wild hypersurface bundles over toric varieties
In this paper, we investigate when there exists a wild hypersurface bundle over a smooth proper toric variety in positive characteristic. In particular, we determine the possibilities for toric
Tilting sheaves on toric varieties
Abstract.In [19], A. King states the following conjecture: Any smooth complete toric variety has a tilting bundle whose summands are line bundles. The goal of this paper is to prove King’s conjecture
Semisimplicity of the quantum cohomology for smooth Fano toric varieties associated with facet symmetric polytopes
The degree zero part of the quantum cohomology algebra of a smooth Fano toric symplectic manifold is determined by the superpotential function, $W$, of its moment polytope. In particular, this


In this paper it is shown that over an algebraically closed field there exist only finitely many mutually nonisomorphic toroidal Fano varieties. We give a complete description of toroidal Fano

A combinatorial criterion for a toric variety to be projective is given which uses Gale-transforms. Furthermore, classes of nonprojective toric varieties are constructed.
