Symplectic Toric Quasifolds

Quasifolds generalise manifolds and orbifolds. They arise naturally when one
wants to extend the standard symplectic toric geometry to simple convex polytopes
that are not rational. We will introduce symplectic toric quasifolds and
discuss some examples and applications.
