The anticanonical complex generalizes the Fano polytope from toric geometry and has been used to study Fano varieties with torus action so far. We provide an explicit description of the anticanonical complex for complete intersections in toric varieties defined by non-degenerate systems of Laurent polynomials. As an application, we classify the ter...

We introduce the notion of intrinsic Grassmannians that generalizes the well-known weighted Grassmannians. An intrinsic Grassmannian is a normal projective variety whose Cox ring is defined by the Plucker ideal $I_{d,n}$ of the Grassmannian $\textrm{Gr}(d,n)$. We give a complete classification of all smooth Fano intrinsic Grassmannians of type $(2,...

An intrinsic Grassmannian is a normal projective variety whose Cox ring is defined by the Pl\"ucker ideal $I_{d,n}$ of the Grassmannian $\mathrm{Gr}(d,n)$.

The anticanonical complex generalizes the Fano polytope from toric geometry and has been used to study Fano varieties with torus action so far. We work out the case of complete intersections in toric varieties defined by non-degenerate systems of Laurent polynomials. As an application, we classify the terminal Fano threefolds that are embedded into...

We study three-dimensional Fano varieties with $\mathbb{C}^*$-action. Complementing recent results [13], we give classification results in the canonical case, where the maximal orbit quotient is $\mathbb{P}_2$ having a line arrangement of five lines in special position as its critical values.

We give an explicit description of the divisor class groups of rational trinomial varieties. As an application, we relate the iteration of Cox rings of any rational variety with torus action of complexity one to that of a Du Val surface.

We investigate degenerations of cubic surfaces which are obtained from degenerating their Cox rings to toric algebras. We work in the spirit of Sturmfels and Xu who use the theory of Khovanskii bases to determine toric degenerations of Del Pezzo surfaces of degree 4 and leave the question of classifying these degenerations in the degree 3 case as a...

The anticanonical complex has been introduced as a natural generalization of the toric Fano polytope and so far has been succesfully used for the study of varieties with a torus action of complexity one. In the present article we enlarge the area of application of the anticanonical complex to varieties with a torus action of higher complexity, for...

We study full rank homogeneous valuations on (multi)-graded domains and ask when they have finite Khovanskii bases. We show that there is a natural reduction from multigraded to simply graded domains. As special cases, we consider projective coordinate rings of rational curves, and almost toric varieties. Our results relate to several problems pose...

We give an explicit description of the divisor class groups of rational trinomial varieties. As an application, we relate the iteration of Cox rings of any rational variety with torus action of complexity one to that of a Du Val surface.

Looking at the well understood case of log terminal surface singularities, one observes that each of them is the quotient of a factorial one by a finite solvable group. The derived series of this group reflects an iteration of Cox rings of surface singularities. We extend this picture to log terminal singularities in any dimension coming with a tor...

We systematically produce algebraic varieties with torus action by constructing them as suitably embedded subvarieties of toric varieties. The resulting varieties admit an explicit treatment in terms of toric geometry and graded ring theory. Our approach extends existing constructions of rational varieties with torus action of complexity one and de...

We characterize all varieties with a torus action of complexity one that admit iteration of Cox rings.

We consider rational varieties with a torus action of complexity one and
extend the combinatorial approach via the Cox ring developed for the complete
case in earlier work to the non-complete, e.g. affine, case. This includes in
particular a description of all factorially graded affine algebras of
complexity one with only constant homogeneous inver...
