Speaker: Madhusudan Manjunath (Queen Mary Univ of London, UK)
Date: 06 September 2016
Time: 4 pm
We start with a gentle introduction to tropical algebraic geometry. We then focus on the tropical lifting problem and discuss recent progress. Tropical analogues of graph curves play an important role in this study. This talk will be accessible to the general mathematical audience.
