# Convexity in divisor theory

Tuesday, October 18, 2016 -

4:30pm to 5:30pm

For toric varieties there is a dictionary relating the geometry of divisors to the theory of polytopes. I will discuss how certain aspects of this dictionary can be extended to divisors on arbitrary smooth projective varieties. These results build upon ideas of Khovanskii and Teissier; as in their work, geometric inequalities and convexity theory play an important role. This is joint work with Jian Xiao.
