Morphisms of toric varieties¶
There are three “obvious” ways to map toric varieties to toric varieties:
 Polynomial maps in local coordinates, the usual morphisms in algebraic geometry.
 Polynomial maps in the (global) homogeneous coordinates.
 Toric morphisms, that is, algebraic morphisms equivariant with respect to the torus action on the toric variety.
Both 2 and 3 are special cases of 1, which is just to say that we always remain within the realm of algebraic geometry. But apart from that, none is included in one of the other cases. In the examples below, we will explore some algebraic maps that can or can not be written as a toric morphism. Often a toric morphism can be written with polynomial maps in homogeneous coordinates, but sometimes it cannot.
The toric morphisms are perhaps the most mysterious at the beginning. Let us quickly review their definition (See Definition 3.3.3 of [CLS]). Let \(\Sigma_1\) be a fan in \(N_{1,\RR}\) and \(\Sigma_2\) be a fan in \(N_{2,\RR}\). A morphism \(\phi: X_{\Sigma_1} \to X_{\Sigma_2}\) of the associated toric varieties is toric if \(\phi\) maps the maximal torus \(T_{N_1} \subseteq X_{\Sigma_1}\) into \(T_{N_2} \subseteq X_{\Sigma_2}\) and \(\phi_{T_N}\) is a group homomorphism.
The data defining a toric morphism is precisely what defines a fan
morphism (see fan_morphism
), extending the more
familiar dictionary between toric varieties and fans. Toric geometry
is a functor from the category of fans and fan morphisms to the
category of toric varieties and toric morphisms.
Note
Do not create the toric morphisms (or any morphism of schemes)
directly from the SchemeMorphism...
classes. Instead, use the
hom()
method common to all
algebraic schemes to create new homomorphisms.
EXAMPLES:
First, consider the following embedding of \(\mathbb{P}^1\) into \(\mathbb{P}^2\)
sage: P2.<x,y,z> = toric_varieties.P2()
sage: P1.<u,v> = toric_varieties.P1()
sage: P1.hom([0,u^2+v^2,u*v], P2)
Scheme morphism:
From: 1d CPRFano toric variety covered by 2 affine patches
To: 2d CPRFano toric variety covered by 3 affine patches
Defn: Defined on coordinates by sending [u : v] to
[0 : u^2 + v^2 : u*v]
This is a welldefined morphism of algebraic varieties because homogeneously rescaled coordinates of a point of \(\mathbb{P}^1\) map to the same point in \(\mathbb{P}^2\) up to its homogeneous rescalings. It is not equivariant with respect to the torus actions
hence it is not a toric morphism. Clearly, the problem is that the map in homogeneous coordinates contains summands that transform differently under the torus action. However, this is not the only difficulty. For example, consider
sage: phi = P1.hom([0,u,v], P2); phi
Scheme morphism:
From: 1d CPRFano toric variety covered by 2 affine patches
To: 2d CPRFano toric variety covered by 3 affine patches
Defn: Defined on coordinates by sending [u : v] to
[0 : u : v]
This map is actually the embedding of the
orbit_closure()
associated to one of the rays of the fan of \(\mathbb{P}^2\). Now the
morphism is equivariant with respect to some map \(\CC^\times \to
(\CC^\times)^2\) of the maximal tori of \(\mathbb{P}^1\) and
\(\mathbb{P}^2\). But this map of the maximal tori cannot be the same as
phi
defined above. Indeed, the image of phi
completely misses
the maximal torus \(T_{\mathbb{P}^2} = \{ [x:y:z]  x\not=0, y\not=0,
z\not=0 \}\) of \(\mathbb{P}^2\).
Consider instead the following morphism of fans:
sage: fm = FanMorphism( matrix(ZZ,[[1,0]]), P1.fan(), P2.fan() ); fm
Fan morphism defined by the matrix
[1 0]
Domain fan: Rational polyhedral fan in 1d lattice N
Codomain fan: Rational polyhedral fan in 2d lattice N
which also defines a morphism of toric varieties:
sage: P1.hom(fm, P2)
Scheme morphism:
From: 1d CPRFano toric variety covered by 2 affine patches
To: 2d CPRFano toric variety covered by 3 affine patches
Defn: Defined by sending Rational polyhedral fan in 1d lattice N
to Rational polyhedral fan in 2d lattice N.
The fan morphism map is equivalent to the following polynomial map:
sage: _.as_polynomial_map()
Scheme morphism:
From: 1d CPRFano toric variety covered by 2 affine patches
To: 2d CPRFano toric variety covered by 3 affine patches
Defn: Defined on coordinates by sending [u : v] to
[u : v : v]
Finally, here is an example of a fan morphism that cannot be written using homogeneous polynomials. Consider the blowup \(O_{\mathbb{P}^1}(2) \to \CC^2/\ZZ_2\). In terms of toric data, this blowup is:
sage: A2_Z2 = toric_varieties.A2_Z2()
sage: A2_Z2.fan().rays()
N(1, 0),
N(1, 2)
in 2d lattice N
sage: O2_P1 = A2_Z2.resolve(new_rays=[(1,1)])
sage: blowup = O2_P1.hom(identity_matrix(2), A2_Z2)
sage: blowup.as_polynomial_map()
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
TypeError: The fan morphism cannot be written in homogeneous polynomials.
If we denote the homogeneous coordinates of \(O_{\mathbb{P}^1}(2)\) by \(x\), \(t\), \(y\) corresponding to the rays \((1,2)\), \((1,1)\), and \((1,0)\) then the blowup map is [BB]:
which requires square roots.
Fibrations¶
If a toric morphism is dominant
, then all fibers over
a fixed torus orbit in the base are isomorphic. Hence, studying the
fibers is again a combinatorial question and Sage implements
additional methods to study such fibrations that are not available
otherwise (however, note that you can always
factor()
to pick out the part
that is dominant over the image or its closure).
For example, consider the blowup restricted to one of the two coordinate charts of \(O_{\mathbb{P}^1}(2)\)
sage: O2_P1_chart = ToricVariety(Fan([O2_P1.fan().generating_cones()[0]]))
sage: single_chart = O2_P1_chart.hom(identity_matrix(2), A2_Z2)
sage: single_chart.is_dominant()
True
sage: single_chart.is_surjective()
False
sage: fiber = single_chart.fiber_generic(); fiber
(0d affine toric variety, 1)
sage: fiber[0].embedding_morphism().as_polynomial_map()
Scheme morphism:
From: 0d affine toric variety
To: 2d affine toric variety
Defn: Defined on coordinates by sending [] to
[1 : 1]
The fibers are labeled by torus orbits in the base, that is, cones of the codomain fan. In this case, the fibers over lowerdimensional torus orbits are:
sage: A2_Z2_cones = flatten(A2_Z2.fan().cones())
sage: table([('cone', 'dim')] +
....: [(cone.ambient_ray_indices(), single_chart.fiber_dimension(cone))
....: for cone in A2_Z2_cones], header_row=True)
cone dim
+++
() 0
(0,) 0
(1,) 1
(0, 1) 1
Lets look closer at the onedimensional fiber. Although not the case
in this example, connected components of fibers over higherdimensional cones
(corresponding
to lowerdimensional torus orbits) of the base are often not
irreducible. The irreducible components are labeled by the
primitive_preimage_cones()
,
which are certain cones of the domain fan that map to the cone in the
base that defines the torus orbit:
sage: table([('base cone', 'primitive preimage cones')] +
....: [(cone.ambient_ray_indices(),
....: single_chart.fan_morphism().primitive_preimage_cones(cone))
....: for cone in A2_Z2_cones], header_row=True)
base cone primitive preimage cones
+++
() (0d cone of Rational polyhedral fan in 2d lattice N,)
(0,) (1d cone of Rational polyhedral fan in 2d lattice N,)
(1,) ()
(0, 1) (1d cone of Rational polyhedral fan in 2d lattice N,)
The fiber over the trivial cone is the generic fiber that we have already encountered. The interesting fiber is the one over the 2dimensional cone, which represents the exceptional set of the blowup in this single coordinate chart. Lets investigate further:
sage: exceptional_cones = single_chart.fan_morphism().primitive_preimage_cones(A2_Z2.fan(2)[0])
sage: exceptional_set = single_chart.fiber_component(exceptional_cones[0])
sage: exceptional_set
1d affine toric variety
sage: exceptional_set.embedding_morphism().as_polynomial_map()
Scheme morphism:
From: 1d affine toric variety
To: 2d affine toric variety
Defn: Defined on coordinates by sending [z0] to
[z0 : 0]
So we see that the fiber over this point is an affine line. Together with another affine line in the other coordinate patch, this covers the exceptional \(\mathbb{P}^1\) of the blowup \(O_{\mathbb{P}^1}(2) \to \CC^2/\ZZ_2\).
Here is an example with higher dimensional varieties involved:
sage: A3 = toric_varieties.A(3)
sage: P3 = toric_varieties.P(3)
sage: m = matrix([(2,0,0), (1,1,0), (3, 1, 0)])
sage: phi = A3.hom(m, P3)
sage: phi.as_polynomial_map()
Scheme morphism:
From: 3d affine toric variety
To: 3d CPRFano toric variety covered by 4 affine patches
Defn: Defined on coordinates by sending [z0 : z1 : z2] to
[z0^2*z1*z2^3 : z1*z2 : 1 : 1]
sage: phi.fiber_generic()
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
AttributeError: 'SchemeMorphism_fan_toric_variety' object
has no attribute 'fiber_generic'
Let’s use factorization mentioned above:
sage: phi_i, phi_b, phi_s = phi.factor()
It is possible to study fibers of the last two morphisms or their composition:
sage: phi_d = phi_b * phi_s
sage: phi_d
Scheme morphism:
From: 3d affine toric variety
To: 2d toric variety covered by 3 affine patches
Defn: Defined by sending Rational polyhedral fan in 3d lattice N to
Rational polyhedral fan in Sublattice <N(1, 0, 0), N(0, 1, 0)>.
sage: phi_d.as_polynomial_map()
Scheme morphism:
From: 3d affine toric variety
To: 2d toric variety covered by 3 affine patches
Defn: Defined on coordinates by sending [z0 : z1 : z2] to

sage: for c in phi_d.codomain().fan():
....: c.ambient_ray_indices()

(0, 1)
We see that codomain fan of this morphism is a projective plane, which can be verified by
sage: phi_d.codomain().fan().is_isomorphic(toric_varieties.P2().fan()) # known bug
True
(Unfortunately it cannot be verified correctly until trac ticket #16012 is fixed.)
We now have access to fiber methods:
sage: fiber = phi_d.fiber_generic()
sage: fiber
(1d affine toric variety, 2)
sage: fiber[0].embedding_morphism()
Scheme morphism:
From: 1d affine toric variety
To: 3d affine toric variety
Defn: Defined by sending
Rational polyhedral fan in Sublattice <N(1, 1, 1)> to
Rational polyhedral fan in 3d lattice N.
sage: fiber[0].embedding_morphism().as_polynomial_map()
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
NotImplementedError: polynomial representations for
fans with virtual rays are not implemented yet
sage: fiber[0].fan().rays()
Empty collection
in Sublattice <N(1, 1, 1)>
We see that generic fibers of this morphism consist of 2 onedimensional tori each. To see what happens over boundary points we can look at fiber components corresponding to the cones of the domain fan:
sage: fm = phi_d.fan_morphism()
sage: for c in flatten(phi_d.domain().fan().cones()):
....: fc, m = phi_d.fiber_component(c, multiplicity=True)
....: print("{} > {} ({} rays, multiplicity {}) over {}".format(
....: c.ambient_ray_indices(), fc, fc.fan().nrays(),
....: m, fm.image_cone(c).ambient_ray_indices()))
() > 1d affine toric variety (0 rays, multiplicity 2) over ()
(0,) > 1d affine toric variety (0 rays, multiplicity 1) over (0,)
(1,) > 2d affine toric variety (2 rays, multiplicity 1) over (0, 1)
(2,) > 2d affine toric variety (2 rays, multiplicity 1) over (0, 1)
(0, 1) > 1d affine toric variety (1 rays, multiplicity 1) over (0, 1)
(1, 2) > 1d affine toric variety (1 rays, multiplicity 1) over (0, 1)
(0, 2) > 1d affine toric variety (1 rays, multiplicity 1) over (0, 1)
(0, 1, 2) > 0d affine toric variety (0 rays, multiplicity 1) over (0, 1)
Now we see that over one of the coordinate lines of the projective plane we also have onedimensional tori (but only one in each fiber), while over one of the points fixed by torus action we have two affine planes intersecting along an affine line. An alternative perspective is provided by cones of the codomain fan:
sage: for c in flatten(phi_d.codomain().fan().cones()):
....: print("{} connected components over {}, each with {} irreducible components.".format(
....: fm.index(c), c.ambient_ray_indices(),
....: len(fm.primitive_preimage_cones(c))))
2 connected components over (), each with 1 irreducible components.
1 connected components over (0,), each with 1 irreducible components.
None connected components over (1,), each with 0 irreducible components.
None connected components over (2,), each with 0 irreducible components.
None connected components over (1, 2), each with 0 irreducible components.
None connected components over (0, 2), each with 0 irreducible components.
1 connected components over (0, 1), each with 2 irreducible components.

Construct a morphism determined by a dominant fan morphism.
A dominant morphism is one that is surjective onto a dense subset. In the context of toric morphisms, this means that it is onto the big torus orbit.

fiber_component
(domain_cone, multiplicity=False)¶ Return a fiber component corresponding to
domain_cone
.INPUT:
domain_cone
– a cone of the domain fan ofself
.multiplicity
(default:False
) – whether to return the number of fiber components corresponding todomain_cone
as well.
OUTPUT:
 either \(X\) or a tuple \((X, n)\), where \(X\) is a
toric variety
with the embedding morphism into domain ofself
and \(n\) is an integer.
Let \(\phi: \Sigma \to \Sigma'\) be the
fan morphism
corresponding toself
. Let \(\sigma \in \Sigma\) and \(\sigma' \in \Sigma'\) be theimage_cone()
of \(\sigma\). The fiber over any point of the torus orbit corresponding to \(\sigma'\) consists of \(n\) isomorphic connected components with each component being a union of toric varieties intersecting along their torus invariant subvarieties. The latter correspond topreimage_cones()
of \(\sigma'\) and \(X\) is one of the \(n\) components corresponding to \(\sigma\). The irreducible components correspond toprimitive_preimage_cones()
.EXAMPLES:
sage: polytope = LatticePolytope( ....: [(3,0,1,1),(1,2,1,1),(0,1,0,0),(0,0,0,1),(0,0,1,0), ....: (0,1,0,0),(0,2,1,1),(1,0,0,0),(2,0,1,1)]) sage: coarse_fan = FaceFan(polytope) sage: P2 = toric_varieties.P2() sage: proj24 = matrix([[0,0],[1,0],[0,0],[0,1]]) sage: fm = FanMorphism(proj24, coarse_fan, P2.fan(), subdivide=True) sage: fibration = ToricVariety(fm.domain_fan()).hom(fm, P2) sage: primitive_cones = fibration.fan_morphism().primitive_preimage_cones(P2.fan(1)[0]) sage: primitive_cone = primitive_cones[0] sage: fibration.fiber_component(primitive_cone) 2d toric variety covered by 4 affine patches sage: fibration.fiber_component(primitive_cone, True) (2d toric variety covered by 4 affine patches, 1) sage: for primitive_cone in primitive_cones: ....: print(fibration.fiber_component(primitive_cone)) 2d toric variety covered by 4 affine patches 2d toric variety covered by 3 affine patches 2d toric variety covered by 3 affine patches

fiber_dimension
(codomain_cone)¶ Return the dimension of the fiber over a particular torus orbit in the base.
INPUT:
codomain_cone
– a cone \(\sigma\) of the codomain, specifying a torus orbit \(O(\sigma)\).
OUTPUT:
An integer. The dimension of the fiber over the torus orbit corresponding to
codomain_cone
. If the fiber is the empty set,1
is returned. Note that all fibers over this torus orbit are isomorphic, and therefore have the same dimension.EXAMPLES:
sage: P1xP1 = toric_varieties.P1xP1() sage: P1 = toric_varieties.P1() sage: f = P1xP1.hom(matrix([[1],[0]]), P1) sage: f.fiber_dimension(P1.fan(0)[0]) 1 sage: f.fiber_dimension(P1.fan(1)[0]) 1 sage: f.fiber_dimension(P1.fan(1)[1]) 1
Here is a more complicated example that is not a flat fibration:
sage: A2_Z2 = toric_varieties.A2_Z2() sage: O2_P1 = A2_Z2.resolve(new_rays=[(1,1)]) sage: blowup = O2_P1.hom(identity_matrix(2), A2_Z2) sage: blowup.fiber_dimension(A2_Z2.fan(0)[0]) 0 sage: blowup.fiber_dimension(A2_Z2.fan(1)[0]) 0 sage: blowup.fiber_dimension(A2_Z2.fan(2)[0]) 1
This corresponds to the three different fibers:
sage: blowup.fiber_generic() (0d affine toric variety, 1) sage: blowup.fiber_component(Cone([(1,0)])) 0d affine toric variety sage: blowup.fiber_component(Cone([(1,1)])) 1d toric variety covered by 2 affine patches

fiber_generic
()¶ Return the generic fiber.
OUTPUT:
 a tuple \((X, n)\), where \(X\) is a
toric variety
with the embedding morphism into domain ofself
and \(n\) is an integer.
The fiber over the base point with homogeneous coordinates \([1:1:\cdots:1]\) consists of \(n\) disjoint toric varieties isomorphic to \(X\). Note that fibers of a dominant toric morphism are isomorphic over all points of a fixed torus orbit of its codomain, in particular over all points of the maximal torus, so it makes sense to talk about “the generic” fiber.
The embedding of \(X\) is a toric morphism with the
domain_fan()
being thekernel_fan()
of the defining fan morphism. By contrast, embeddings of fiber components over lowerdimensional torus orbits of the image are not toric morphisms. Usefiber_component()
for the latter (nongeneric) fibers.EXAMPLES:

 a tuple \((X, n)\), where \(X\) is a

fiber_graph
(codomain_cone)¶ Return the fiber over a given torus orbit in the codomain.
INPUT:
codomain_cone
– a cone \(\sigma\) of the codomain, specifying a torus orbit \(O(\sigma)\).
OUTPUT:
A graph whose nodes are the irreducible components of a connected component of the fiber over a point of \(O(\sigma)\). If two irreducible components intersect, the corresponding nodes of the graph are joined by an edge. Note that irreducible components do not have to be of the same dimension.
