Toric Topology

Researchers: Victor Buchstaber, Alexander Gaifullin, Nickolay Erochovets and Taras Panov.

Toric Topology studies torus actions on manifolds and cell complexes whose orbit quotients have a rich combinatorial structure. The subject has appeared in the late 1990s as a topological extension of the theory of algebraic and hamiltonian toric manifolds. Toric Topology is characterised by a confluence of ideas and methodology of equivariant topology, algebraic and symplectic geometry, combinatorics, commutative and homological algebra. This is a new and actively developing area attracting more and more researchers around the world.
