# Tropical intersection theory from toric varieties

@article{Katz2009TropicalIT, title={Tropical intersection theory from toric varieties}, author={Eric Katz}, journal={Collectanea Mathematica}, year={2009}, volume={63}, pages={29-44} }

We apply ideas from intersection theory on toric varieties to tropical intersection theory. We introduce mixed Minkowski weights on toric varieties which interpolate between equivariant and ordinary Chow cohomology classes on compact toric varieties. These objects fit into the framework of tropical intersection theory developed by Allermann and Rau. Standard facts about intersection theory on toric varieties are applied to show that the definitions of tropical intersection product on tropical…
