Mikhalkin's tropical schemes versus Durov's tropical schemes

In Mikhalkin's unfinished draft book on tropical geometry, (available here) (page 26) he defines a notion of tropical schemes. It seems to me that this definition is not just a wholesale adaptation of ...

Which manifolds decompose into pants?

In this nice paper Mikhalkin uses certain (more geometrical than algebraic) aspects of tropical geometry to prove that every complex projective hypersurface in $\mathbb C \mathbb P ^n$ decomposes as a ...

Chow ring of extended tropicalizations

In Allermann-Rau '09, the authors define the Chow groups of an arbitrary abstract tropical cycle. In particular, one may take the tropical cycle to be the tropicalization of a subvariety of a torus. ...

$L_1$ and $L_\infty$ Voronoi diagrams and tropical geometry: Connection?

I just realized that there is a visual similarity between Voronoi diagrams in the $L_1$ and $L_\infty$ metrics (two images below)     Left: O'Rourke, "Computing Relative Neighborhood graph ...

Tropical Properties From Algebraic Geometry

What properties of tropical geometry (Starting from a valued Field) can be proven to be true using their analogue in algebraic geometry? For example, using the valuation on the Puiseux series ...

Tropicalization of the Grassmannian

Let $Trop(Gr(m,n))$ denote the tropicalization of the grassmannian $Gr(n,m)$. Let $\phi^m : \mathbb R^{n \choose 2} \rightarrow \mathbb R^{n \choose m}$ such that $X_{i,j} \rightarrow ...

Hodge Bundles on Tropical Spaces

I am not sure that this question even makes sense, which I suppose is part of the questions itself. In any case, I attended a talk recently wherin there was some discussion about a "tropical ...

Tropical polynomial Positivstellensatz

In real algebraic geometry, Stengle's Positivstellensatz can be used to characterize polynomials that are positive on a semialgebraic set. Say that a tropical semialgebraic set is a subset of ...

Algorithms for “Ideals” in polynomial algebras over the max-plus semi-ring

I'm a beginner in tropical geometry, and I'm running into the following question: In the usual polynomial ring over a field, one has algorithms (i.e. using a Groebner basis) for determining whether ...

Simple topological question on taking complements inside a simplex

We would like to know if the following claim is true: (If you don't know the definition of a tropical hyperplane, then please consider the case when d=3) Let $P_1,\cdots,P_d$ be full dimensional ...

Asymptotics vs Puiseux series

Define asymptotic as a class of sequences {$ x_i$},$_{i\in\mathbb N}$ modulo equivalence {$x_i$}={$y_i$} if $\lim_{i\to\infty} (x_i/y_i)=c\in\mathbb R,c\ne 0$. More, we define $X= \{x_i\} \lt Y= \{ ...

Notion of transversality over the field of Puiseux series.

To a given a Laurent polynomial $f$ over the field of Puiseux seris with parameter $t$, $f \in \mathbb{C} \lbrace\lbrace t \rbrace\rbrace[z_1^{\pm1},...,z_n^{\pm 1}]$, one can associate the ...

Bases of Ideals With no Monomials

Let $K$ be an algebraically closed field and $K[\underline{x}]$ its ring of polynomials in $n$ variables $x_1,\cdots, x_n$. Let $J\leq K[\underline{x}]$ be an ideal such that there are no monomials in ...

Tropical varieties correspondence to varieties over a non-archimedean valuation field.

I am a mathematical physicist and I am studying certain discrete dynamical systems defined in terms of piecewise linear mappings, which may be expressed in terms of expressions over the max-plus ...
