# How to Draw Tropical Planes

@article{Herrmann2009HowTD, title={How to Draw Tropical Planes}, author={Sven Herrmann and Anders Nedergaard Jensen and Michael Joswig and Bernd Sturmfels}, journal={Electron. J. Comb.}, year={2009}, volume={16} }

The tropical Grassmannian parameterizes tropicalizations of linear spaces, while the Dressian parameterizes all planes in $\TP^{n-1}$. We study these parameter spaces and we compute them explicitly for $n \leq 7$. Planes are identified with matroid subdivisions and with arrangements of trees. These representations are used to draw pictures.

Tropicalization of Del Pezzo Surfaces

We determine the tropicalizations of very affine surfaces over a valued field that are obtained from del Pezzo surfaces of degree 5, 4 and 3 by removing their (-1)-curves. On these tropical surfaces,… Expand

The image of the complement of a hyperplane arrangement under a monomial map can be tropicalized combinatorially using matroid theory and this effectuates a synthesis of concrete and abstract approaches to tropical moduli of genus 2 curves. Expand

The main result is that all constructible tropical linear spaces have the same $f-vector and are “series-parallel”, and it is conjectured that this $f$-vector is maximal for all Tropical linear spaces, with equality precisely for the series-par parallel tropicallinear spaces. Expand
