Description
This paper studies Batyrev's notion of primitive collection. We use primitive collections to characterize the nef cone of a quasi-projective toric variety whose fan has convex support, a result stated without proof by Batyrev in the smooth projective case. When the fan is non-simplicial, we modify the definition of primitive collection and explain how our definition relates to primitive collections of simplicial subdivisons. The paper ends with some open problems.
Comment: A new proof of Batyrev's theorem, based on ideas of Kresch, is included and Conjecture 4.4 has been deleted since it is wrong
