Abstract We exploit three classical characterizations of smooth genus two curves to study their tropical and analytic counterparts. First, we provide a combinatorial rule to determine the dual graph of each algebraic curve and the metric structure on its minimal Berkovich skeleton. Our main tool is the description of genus two curves via hyperelliptic covers of the projective line with six branch points. Given the valuations of these six points and their differences, our algorithm provides an… Expand
