Time and location:   Thu 15:30 – 17:00 (two-week), S3 047 (or via Zoom)

First meeting: 11 March

Lecture: A theoretical introduction into the area of Tropical Geometry will be presented. Tropical Geometry can be understand as a piecewise linear version of Algebraic Geometry. The applications reach to well-known problems in Algebra, Geometry, Combinatorics and Differential Algebra.

The course will mainly follow

D. Maclagan, B. Sturmfels: Introduction to Tropical Geometry,
American Mathematical Society, 2015.

Participants are expected to be acquainted with the basic notions in Computer Algebra (Commutative Algebra and Algebra are beneficial but not necessary).
