Description

Tropical geometry is a piece-wise linear geometry which merges ideas from algebraic, symplectic and non-archimedean geometry with tools from combinatorics and convex geometry. Via the process of tropicalization, classical varieties and geometric problems can be connected to the tropical world and, in some cases, solved there. In non-archimedean geometry, the valuation on the underlying field makes the idea of tropicalization particularly natural and powerful. In recent years, this connection has received much attention and exhibited links to diverse topics such as Hodge theory, mirror symmetry and the study of zeta functions. The main goal of this event is to introduce students and young mathematicians to these exciting topics and to foster and strengthen the connections between local researchers and the international mathematical community.

The school will introduce the participants to tropical and non-archimedean geometry via two minicourses given by Ilia Itenberg (Sorbonne Université) and Marco Maculan (Sorbonne Université). Additionally, in the research talks we will explore the latest developments in the field. We hope that this school can serve as the starting point for a local network of researchers and students and therefore can be continued in the coming years by follow-up events of a similar type.
