- Title: Introduction to spherical varieties

- Abstract: The family of spherical varieties is one of the biggest family of examples of complex algebraic varieties, including the family of toric varieties that are very-well understood and appear in a lot of works in algebraic geometry. The aim of this lecture is to explain how the theory of toric varieties extends to a larger family of varieties endowed with an action of a connected reductive algebraic group.  We will begin by recalling the theory of toric varieties and the basics of linear actions of reductive groups.
