We study the problem of how the dual complex of the special fiber of a strict normal crossings degeneration $\mathscr{X}_{R}$ changes under products. We view the dual complex as a skeleton inside the Berkovich space associated to $X_{K}$ . Using the Kato fan, we define a skeleton $\text{Sk}(\mathscr{X}_{R})$ when the model $\mathscr{X}_{R}$ is log-regular. We show that if $\mathscr{X}_{R}$ and $\mathscr{Y}_{R}$ are log-smooth, and at least one is semistable, then $\text{Sk}(\mathscr{X}_{R… Expand
The geometry of degenerations of Hilbert schemes of points
Given a strict simple degeneration $f \colon X\to C$ the first three authors previously constructed a degeneration $I^n_{X/C} \to C$ of the relative degree $n$ Hilbert scheme of $0$-dimensionalExpand
Convergence of Narasimhan-Simha measures on degenerating families of Riemann surfaces.
Given a compact Riemann surface $Y$ and a positive integer $m$, Narasimhan and Simha defined a measure on $Y$ associated to the $m$-th tensor power of the canonical line bundle. We study the limit ofExpand
Convergence of p-adic pluricanonical measures to Lebesgue measures on skeleta in Berkovich spaces
Let $K$ be a non-archimedean local field, $X$ a smooth and proper $K$-scheme, and fix a pluricanonical form on $X$. For every finite extension $K'$ of $K$, the pluricanonical form induces a measureExpand
Symmetric powers of algebraic and tropical curves: a non-Archimedean perspective
We show that the non-Archimedean skeleton of the $d$-th symmetric power of a smooth projective algebraic curve $X$ is naturally isomorphic to the $d$-th symmetric power of the tropical curve thatExpand
Essential skeletons of pairs and the geometric P=W conjecture.
We construct weight functions on the Berkovich analytification of a variety over a trivially-valued field of characteristic zero, and this leads to the definition of the Kontsevich-SoibelmanExpand
The Frobenius structure theorem for affine log Calabi-Yau varieties containing a torus
We show that the naive counts of rational curves in any affine log Calabi-Yau variety $U$, containing an open algebraic torus, determine in a surprisingly simple way, a family of log Calabi-YauExpand
Convergence of volume forms on a family of log-Calabi-Yau varieties to a non-Archimedean measure
We study the convergence of volume forms on a degenerating holomorphic family of log-Calabi-Yau varieties to a non-Archimedean measure, extending a result of Boucksom and Jonsson. More precisely, letExpand
Lagrangian fibrations
We review the theory of Lagrangian fibrations of hyperkähler manifolds as initiated by Matsushita [Mat99, Mat01, Mat05]. We also discuss more recent work of Shen–Yin [SY18] and Harder–Li–Shen–YinExpand
Applications of Canonical Metrics on Berkovich Spaces
This thesis examines the nature of Temkin’s canonical metrics on the sheaves of differentials of Berkovich spaces, and discusses 3 applications thereof. First, we show a comparison theorem betweenExpand
Computing motivic zeta functions on log smooth models
We give an explicit formula for the motivic zeta function in terms of a log smooth model. It generalizes the classical formulas for snc-models, but it gives rise to much fewer candidate poles, inExpand


The geometry of degenerations of Hilbert schemes of points
Given a strict simple degeneration $f \colon X\to C$ the first three authors previously constructed a degeneration $I^n_{X/C} \to C$ of the relative degree $n$ Hilbert scheme of $0$-dimensionalExpand
Skeletons and tropicalizations
Let $K$ be a complete, algebraically closed non-archimedean field with ring of integers $K^\circ$ and let $X$ be a $K$-variety. We associate to the data of a strictly semistable $K^\circ$-modelExpand
Non-Archimedean geometry of Artin fans
The purpose of this article is to study the role of Artin fans in tropical and non-Archimedean geometry. Artin fans are logarithmic algebraic stacks that can be described completely in terms ofExpand
The essential skeleton of a degeneration of algebraic varieties
In this paper, we explore the connections between the Minimal Model Program and the theory of Berkovich spaces. Let $k$ be a field of characteristic zero and let $X$ be a smooth and projectiveExpand
A relative Hilbert–Mumford criterion
We generalize the classical Hilbert–Mumford criteria for GIT (semi-)stability in terms of one parameter subgroups of a linearly reductive group G over a field k, to the relative situation of anExpand
Remarks on degenerations of hyper-K\"ahler manifolds
Using the Minimal Model Program, any degeneration of K-trivial varieties can be arranged to be in a Kulikov type form, i.e. with trivial relative canonical divisor and mild singularities. In theExpand
Desingularized moduli spaces of sheaves on a K3, I
Moduli spaces of semistable torsion-free sheaves on a K3 surface $X$ are often holomorphic symplectic varieties, deformation equivalent to a Hilbert scheme parametrizing zero-dimensional subschemesExpand
The dual complex of Calabi–Yau pairs
A log Calabi–Yau pair consists of a proper variety X and a divisor D on it such that $$K_X+D$$KX+D is numerically trivial. A folklore conjecture predicts that the dual complex of D is homeomorphic toExpand
Weight functions on non-archimedean analytic spaces and the Kontsevich-Soibelman skeleton
We associate a weight function to pairs consisting of a smooth and proper variety X over a complete discretely valued field and a differential form on X of maximal degree. This weight function is aExpand
