The Hirzeburch Compactification of Hibert Modular Surfaces
In this talk we will give a non-singular compactification of Hilbert modular surfaces by constructing a particular toric variety for each cusp. Other than the familiar compactification of modular curves this illustrative example is the simplest case of Mumford's theory of toroidal compactifications.
