  author={Lars Petersen and Hendrik S{\"u}{\ss}},

Using the language of Altmann, Hausen and Süß, we describe invariant divisors on normal varieties X which admit an effective codimension one torus action. In this picture, X is given by a divisorial fan on a smooth projective curve Y. Cartier divisors on X can be described by piecewise affine functions h on the divisorial fan S whereas Weil divisors correspond to certain zero and one-dimensional faces of it. Furthermore, we provide descriptions of the divisor class group and the canonical… 

Torus Invariant Curves

Using the language of T-varieties, we study torus invariant curves on a complete normal variety $X$ with an effective codimension-one torus action. In the same way that the $T$-invariant Weil

Cox rings of rational complexity one T-varieties


We propose a method to compute a desingularization of a normal affine varietyX endowed with a torus action in terms of a combinatorial description of such a variety due to Altmann and Hausen. This

Line Bundles on Complexity-One T -Varieties and Beyond

In this dissertation, we focus on the description of equivariant line bundles on complexity-one T -varieties and two applications thereof. Using the language of polyhedral divisors and divisorial

Families of Divisors on T-Varieties and Exceptional Sequences on C*-Surfaces

We show how one-parameter homogeneous deformations of rational T -varieties induce maps from a subgroup of the Picard group of any fiber of the deformation to the Picard group of the special fiber.

On the geometry of normal horospherical G-varieties of complexity one

Let G be a connected simply-connected reductive algebraic group. In this article, we consider the normal algebraic varieties equipped with a horospherical G-action such that the quotient of a



Gluing Affine Torus Actions Via Divisorial Fans

Generalizing the passage from a fan to a toric variety, we provide a combinatorial approach to construct arbitrary effective torus actions on normal, algebraic varieties. Based on the notion of a

Cartier divisors and geometry of normalG-varieties

We study Cartier divisors on normal varieties with the action of a reductive groupG. We give criteria for a divisor to be Cartier, globally generated and ample, and apply them to a study of the local

Polyhedral Divisors and Algebraic Torus Actions

We provide a complete description of normal affine varieties with effective algebraic torus action in terms of what we call proper polyhedral divisors on semiprojective varieties. Our approach

Normal affine surfaces with C*-actions

A classification of normal affine surfaces admitting a $\bf C^*$-action was given in the work of Bia{\l}ynicki-Birula, Fieseler and L. Kaup, Orlik and Wagreich, Rynes and others. We provide a simple

We consider the problem of finding a combinatorial description of the algebraic varieties in a given birational class that admit an action of a reductive group G. This is a direct generalization of
