Toric manifolds of Picard numbers  smaller than 4 have been entirely classified by Kleinschmidt(1988) and Batyrev(1991). Recently, their results have been recovered by Choi-Park (2016).  Simplicial complexes which cannot be described as the wedge of a lower dimensional simplicial complex are called seeds. Choi-Park showed that, for a fixed Picard number $p$, there are at most finite seeds which support toric manifolds. In addition, they provided an algorithm to construct all toric manifolds of Picard number $p$ from such seeds. By using this, one can reprove the results of Kleinschmidt and Batyrev, and there will be a chance to solve the case of Picard number $4$. However, it was not successful yet, since it is quite challenging to list up all seeds (for the given Picard number) which support toric manifolds although we know that they are of finite number.
