Abstract. A theorem of Delzant states that any symplectic manifold
(M, ) of dimension 2n, equipped with an effective Hamiltonian action
of the standard n-torus n
= n
, is a smooth projective toric va-
riety completely determined (as a Hamiltonian n
-space) by the image
of the moment map : M n
, a convex polytope P = (M) n
In this paper we show, using symplectic (action-angle) coordinates on
