The aim of this book is to provide an introduction for students and nonspecialists to a fascinating relation between combinatorial geometry and algebraic geometry, as it has developed during the last two decades. This relation is known as the theory of toric varieties or sometimes as torusBrand: Springer-Verlag New York. Familiarity with any of representation theory, real algebraic geometry, convex geometry, graph theory or semidefinite optimization is a plus but will not be assumed. Students should prepare by reading Appendices 2 and 3 in that same book. For eligibility and how to apply, see the Summer Graduate Schools homepage.

Opposite of "concave". A geometric shape is convex if all its edges "point outwards". That is no part of it curves or faces inwards. If a shape is convex, a line segment drawn between any two points on the shape will always lie inside the shape.
