Tropical CurvesStudent-Run Applied & Math Seminar
|Speaker:||Florian Block, UC Berkeley|

I will explain what tropical curves are, how they appear as a "logarithmic limit" of classical algebraic curves, and compute some examples. Then we'll prove the tropical Bezout theorem. Finally, we'll look at some higher dimensional examples of tropical varieties.
