"Lattice polytopes from viewpoint of algebraic geometry"


A lattice polytope in n-dimensional real vector space is a convex hull of finitely many points with integral coordinates. The purpose of my talk will be to explain some results and open questions concerning special lattice polytopes which naturally appear in connection to algebraic geometry and inspired by mirror symmetry.

Light refreshments will be served in the faculty lounge at 3:30.
