Z-linear Gale duality and poly weighted spaces (PWS)


The present paper is devoted to discussing Gale duality from the Z-linear algebraic point of view. This allows us to isolate the class of Q-factorial complete toric varieties whose class group is torsion free, here called poly weighted spaces (PWS), as an interesting generalization of weighted projective spaces (WPS).Comment: 29 pages: revised version to appear in Linear Algebra and Its Applications. Major changes: the paper has been largely rewritten following refree's comments. In particular, main geometric results have been anticipated giving rise to the motivational Section
