ON SOME COMPLEX MANIFOLDS WITH TORUS SYMMETRY 5

It is known that for any LM-V manifold there exists a natural fibration

G

defined

by commuting holomorphic vector fields. In the case that the given LM-V manifold

satisfies condition (K), Meersseman and Verjovsky proved the following:

THEOREM

4.1.

[11] Let

(A1, ... ,An)

form an admissible configuration satisfying

condition (K). Then

i) The leaves of the fibration G are compact complex tori and the quotient space is

a toric projective variety with only orbifold singularities X (

~).

ii) The projection

M---+

X(~)

is a holomorphic Seifert bundle.

Moreover, one can see that

X (

~)

is a manifold if the configuration A with condition

(K) satisfies an additional assumption that the basis of

(1)

can be completed to a

basis of

zn.

In [11] the manifold M has also been identified as a presymplectic (or

Poisson) reduction of

en.

Now we want to describe the fibration

M

---+

X(~)

in

terms of "genuine" moment map of a torus action on the complex projective space

cpn.

This will also provide another proof of the above theorem for the smooth

case and will lead to additional insight into the properties of M.

Consider the standard action of the real torus

which in homogeneous coordinates has the form:

The moment map of this action with respect to the Fubini-Study form is:

A more general form of the above action is the weighted T

form of

JR2m.

The moment map for this action with respect to the Fubini-Study

form is:

tLA([z])

=

(I:f=1o:;lz;l

/I:f=11z;l

2,

I:f=1/3;lz;l

2

/I:f=11z;l

2).

Then the zero level set of

{LA

is exactly

Thus we have proved:

THEOREM

4.2.

The LM- V manifold M is diffeomorphic to Z

=

(0).

It is known that

Z---+

X(~)

is a principal torus bundle in the smooth case and a

Seifert fibration in the orbifold case [7]. From Theorem

2.1

we obtain a complex

structure on Z.

A corollary for the Riemannian geometry of such bundles is:

COROLLARY

4.1.

The LM- V manifolds satisfying condition (K) with base Fano

manifold admit a metric with positive Ricci curvature.
