Weights in the cohomology of toric varieties

Andrzej Weber
Published Online: 2004-06-01 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/BF02475240


We describe the weight filtration in the cohomology of toric varieties. We present a role of the Frobenius automorphism in an elementary way. We prove that equivariant intersection homology of an arbitrary toric variety is pure. We obtain results concerning Koszul duality: nonequivariant intersection cohomology is equal to the cohomology of the Koszul complexIH T*(X)⊗H*(T). We also describe the weight filtration inIH *(X).

Keywords: Toric varieties; equivariant intersection cohomology; weight filtration
