Tropical Spectral Curves and Integrable Cellular Automata

  title={Tropical Spectral Curves and Integrable Cellular Automata},
  author={T Takenawa},
We propose a method to study the integrable cellular automata with periodic boundary conditions, via the tropical spectral curve and its Jacobian. We introduce the tropical version of eigenvector map from the isolevel set to a divisor class on the tropical hyperelliptic curve. We also provide some conjectures related to the divisor class and the Jacobian. Finally, we apply our method to the periodic box and ball system and clarify the algebro-geometrical meaning of the real torus introduced for… CONTINUE READING
