Algebraic , Tropical , and Nonarchimedean Analytic Geometry of Moduli Spaces

Tropical geometry is a rapidly developing field, with close connections to algebraic and nonarchimedean analytic geometry as well as to piecewise-linear combinatorics. From the algebro-geometric perspective, tropicalization can be regarded as a modern degeneration technique in which varieties are replaced by polyhedral combinatorial objects. At the same… (More)
