We study whether a given tropical curve $\Gamma$ in $\mathbb{R}^n$ can be realized as the tropicalization of an algebraic curve whose non-archimedean skeleton is faithfully represented by $\Gamma$. We give an affirmative answer to this question for a large class of tropical curves that includes all trivalent tropical curves, but also many tropical curves of higher valence. We then deduce that for every metric graph $G$ with rational edge lengths there exists a smooth algebraic curve in a toric… 

Tropical techniques in cluster theory and enumerative geometry

There are three parts in this thesis. First, we generalize the class of tropicalcurves from trivalent to 3-colorable which can be realized as the tropicalization of an algebraic curve whose

From Curves to Tropical Jacobians and Back

For a curve over an algebraically closed field that is complete with respect to a nontrivial valuation, we study its tropical Jacobian. We first tropicalize the curve and then use the weighted metric

Tropicalization is a non-Archimedean analytic stack quotient

For a complex toric variety $X$ the logarithmic absolute value induces a natural retraction of $X$ onto the set of its non-negative points and this retraction can be identified with a quotient of

Construction of Fully Faithful Tropicalizations for Curves in Ambient Dimension 3

In tropical geometry, one studies algebraic curves using combinatorial techniques via the tropicalization procedure. The tropicalization depends on a map to an algebraic torus and the combinatorial

Moduli of stable maps in genus one and logarithmic geometry, I

This is the second in a pair of papers developing a framework to apply logarithmic methods in the study of singular curves of genus $1$. This volume focuses on logarithmic Gromov--Witten theory and

A Method for Determining the Realizability of Tropical Curves in R^3

A tropical variety is a weighted polyhedral complex whose maximal dimensional cells are pure dimensional, rational, connected, and balanced weighted around every vertex. It is known that every

Brill-Noether theory for curves of a fixed gonality

Abstract We prove a generalisation of the Brill-Noether theorem for the variety of special divisors $W^r_d(C)$ on a general curve C of prescribed gonality. Our main theorem gives a closed formula


We contribute to the foundations of tropical geometry with a view toward formulating tropical moduli problems, and with the moduli space of curves as our main example. We propose a moduli functor for

Enumerative geometry of elliptic curves on toric surfaces

We establish the equality of classical and tropical curve counts for elliptic curves on toric surfaces with fixed j-invariant, refining results of Mikhalkin and Nishinou–Siebert. As an application,

Graphs and obstruction theory for algebraic curves

In this paper we study a construction of algebraic curves from combinatorial data. In the study of algebraic curves through degeneration, graphs usually appear as the dual intersection graph of the



Nonarchimedean geometry, tropicalization, and metrics on curves

We develop a number of general techniques for comparing analytifications and tropicalizations of algebraic varieties. Our basic results include a projection formula for tropical multiplicities and a

Tropical geometry and correspondence theorems via toric stacks

In this paper we generalize correspondence theorems of Mikhalkin and Nishinou-Siebert providing a correspondence between algebraic and parameterized tropical curves. We also give a description of a

Tropical varieties for non-archimedean analytic spaces

Generalizing the construction from tropical algebraic geometry, we associate to every (irreducible d-dimensional) closed analytic subvariety of $\mathbb{G}_{m}^{n}$ a tropical variety in ℝn with

Monodromy Filtrations and the Topology of Tropical Varieties

Abstract We study the topology of tropical varieties that arise from a certain natural class of varieties. We use the theory of tropical degenerations to construct a natural, “multiplicity-free”

On the structure of nonarchimedean analytic curves

Let K be an algebraically closed, complete nonarchimedean field and let X be a smooth K-curve. In this paper we elaborate on several aspects of the structure of the Berkovich analytic space X^an. We

On the structure of non-archimedean analytic curves

Let K be an algebraically closed, complete non-Archimedean field and let X be a smooth K-curve. In this paper we elaborate on several aspects of the structure of the Berkovich analytic space Xan. We

Correspondence theorems for tropical curves I

In this paper, we study the deformation theory of degenerate algebraic curves on singular varieties which appear as the degenerate limit of families of varieties. For this purpose, we systematically

A guide to tropicalizations

Tropicalizations form a bridge between algebraic and convex geometry. We generalize basic results from tropical geometry which are well-known for special ground elds to arbitrary non-archimedean
