Synopsis

• Operator: **
• Usage:
X ** Y
• Inputs:
• X, ,
• Y, ,
• Outputs:
• , the product of X and Y

Description

The Cartesian product of two varieties $X$ and $Y$, both defined over the same ground field $k$, is the fiber product $X \times_k Y$. For normal toric varieties, the fan of the product is given by the Cartesian product of each pair of cones in the fans of the factors.

The map from the torus-invariant Weil divisors to the class group is the direct sum of the maps for the factors.

The factors are cached and can be accessed with components.
