Toric Topology of the Grassmannian Of Planes In ℂ⁵ and the Del Pezzo Surface of Degree 5

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We determine the integral homology of the orbit space of a maximal compact torus action on the Grassmannian Gr(2;C5). This problem has been also studied by Buchstaber and Terzic via purely topological methods. Here, we propose an alternative approach via the well-known Geometric Invariant Theory of the algebraic torus action on this Grassmannian.
