This volume contains the proceedings of the CIEM workshop on Tropical Geometry, held December 12–16, 2011, at the International Centre for Mathematical Meetings (CIEM), Castro Urdiales, Spain.
Tropical geometry is a new and rapidly developing field of mathematics which has deep connections with various areas of mathematics and physics, such as algebraic geometry, symplectic geometry, complex analysis, dynamical systems, combinatorics, statistical physics, and string theory. As reflected by the content of this volume, this meeting was mainly focused on the geometric side of the tropical world with an emphasis on relations between tropical geometry, algebraic geometry, and combinatorics.
This volume provides an overview of current trends concerning algebraic and combinatorial aspects of tropical geometry through eleven papers combining expository parts and development of modern techniques and tools.
Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in tropical geometry, algebraic geometry, and combinatorics.
