Toric methods found their way into string theory in the context of discussions of mirror symmetry in terms of reflexive polyhedra, and in the analysis of the phase structures of string compactifications. More recently, it turned out that toric geometry is also a valuable tool for the discussion of geometric properties of manifolds that become important in the context of string and F-theory dualities.
