The talk will be devoted to a new elementary combinatorial construction of minimal projective birational models of complex hypersurfaces defined by zeros of a Laurent polynomial $f$ in $d$ complex variables. The proposed construction is based on combinatorial methods of convex geometry that connect the Newton polytope of a Laurent polynomial $f$ with toric varieties.
