In algebraic geometry, a Cox ring is a sort of universal homogeneous coordinate ring for a projective variety, and is (roughly speaking) a direct sum of the spaces of sections of all isomorphism classes of line bundles. Cox rings were introduced by Hu & Keel (2000), based on an earlier construction by Cox (1995) for toric varieties.
