A Note on Toric Varieties Associated with Moduli Spaces
In this note we give a brief review of the construction of a toric
variety $\mathcal{V}$ coming from a genus $g \geq 2$ Riemann surface
$\Sigma^g$ equipped with a trinion, or pair of pants, decomposition.
This was outlined by J. Hurtubise and L.~C. Jeffrey.
A. Tyurin used this construction on a certain
collection of trinion decomposed surfaces to produce a variety
$DM_g$, the socalled \emph{Delzant model of moduli space}, for
each genus $g.$ We conclude this note with some basic facts about
the moment polytopes of the varieties $\mathcal{V}.$ In particular,
we show that the varieties $DM_g$ constructed by Tyurin, and claimed
to be smooth, are in fact singular for $g \geq 3.$

Vector Fields and the Cohomology Ring of Toric Varieties
Let $X$ be a smooth complex
projective variety with a holomorphic vector field with isolated
zero set $Z$. From the results of Carrell and Lieberman
there exists a filtration
$F_0 \subset F_1 \subset \cdots$ of $A(Z)$, the ring of
$\c$valued functions on $Z$, such that $\Gr A(Z) \cong H^*(X,
\c)$ as graded algebras. In this note, for a smooth projective
toric variety and a vector field generated by the action of a
$1$parameter subgroup of the torus, we work out this filtration.
Our main result is an explicit connection between this filtration
and the polytope algebra of $X$.
