The Mathematical and Computational Sciences at Western are represented by four separate departments: Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistical & Actuarial Sciences. The Department of Mathematics has established research groups in several areas of contemporary mathematics including algebra, analysis and analytic geometry, homotopy theory, and noncommutative geometry.

Each week the Department of Mathematics hosts a wide variety of seminars and events. For a comprehensive list of events, please consult our departmental calendar.

We will study the orbits of T-action on the toric variety X defined by a fan. The main aim is to show the orbits are in bijective correspondence with the cones in the fan defining X.
