Projective Normality of Smooth Toric Varieties

As of the last updating of this webpage, it is an open question whether smooth toric varieties are always projectively normal. This webpage will record progress and partial results as we look for a proof or a counterexample.

In August 2007 there was an Oberwolfach mini-workshop on this topic. The report for the workshop is available here. It includes a description of the problem.

In April 2009 there was a workshop on this topic and related problems at the American Institute of Mathematics. See the webpage.

This page is a "static Wiki" - contributions are welcome. Send your examples/proofs/counterexamples for inclusion in the webpage to me at the email address on my main page
