SMOOTH HOROSPHERICAL VARIETIES OF PICARD NUMBER ONE AS LINEAR SECTIONS OF RATIONAL HOMOGENEOUS VARIETIES Hong, Jaehyun;
We construct projective embeddings of horospherical varieties of Picard number one by means of Fano varieties of cones over rational homogeneous varieties. Then we use them to give embeddings of smooth horospherical varieties of Picard number one as linear sections of rational homogeneous varieties.
