## Introductory Toric Geometry

This is the first part, consisting of four lectures, of a mini-course in which the combinatorial geometry related to toric varieties will be introduced. It will be developed to define and express properties of toric varieties and toric morphisms, and to investigate the geometry of the orbits by the torus action, in particular the orbit decomposition. Next, toric divisors, invertible and reflexive sheaves on toric variety, and their groups will be introduced and studied.
