On k-normality and regularity of normal projective toric varieties
Tran, Bach Le
We study the relationship between geometric properties of toric varieties and combinatorial properties of the corresponding lattice polytopes. In particular, we give a bound for a very ample lattice polytope to be k-normal. Equivalently, we give a new combinatorial bound for the Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity of normal projective toric varieties. We also give a new combinatorial proof for a special case of Reider's Theorem for smooth toric surfaces.
