Item description for Tropical Algebraic Geometry (Oberwolfach Seminars) by Ilia Itenberg, Grigory Mikhalkin & Eugenii I. Shustin...
These notes present a polished introduction to tropical geometry and contain some applications of this rapidly developing and attractive subject. Tropical geometry is algebraic geometry over the semifield of tropical numbers, i.e., the real numbers and negative infinity enhanced with the (max,+)-arithmetics. Geometrically, tropical varieties are much simpler than their classical counterparts. Yet they carry information about complex and real varieties.The notes consists of three chapters which complete each other and give a possibility for non-specialists to make the first steps in the subject which is not yet well represented in the literature. They are based on a seminar at the Mathematical Research Center in Oberwolfach in October 2004. The intended audience is graduate, post-graduate, and Ph.D. students as well as established researchers in mathematics.
