Are there any methods for finding the minimal (or at least of smaller dimension) projective space P^n which can contain a given algebraic variety?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example, some curves in P^2 are isomorphic to P^1, and so P^1 is the minimal space which can contain such a curve.

I am looking for something like an inverse segre-embedding (in some sense) or an inverse d-uple-embedding, only more general.

Any clues?
