The phase limit set of a variety

Mounir Nisse and Frank Sottile

Vol. 7 (2013), No. 2, 339–352
Abstract

A coamoeba is the image of a subvariety of a complex torus under the argument map to the real torus. We describe the structure of the boundary of the coamoeba of a variety, which we relate to its logarithmic limit set. Detailed examples of lines in three-dimensional space illustrate and motivate these results.
