Title: Tropical Curves and Their Structures

Speaker: Desmond Coles (Ohio State University)

Abstract: A tropical curve is given by a set of "vanishing" points for a tropical polynomial, but what do tropical curves look like, geometrically and combinatorially? We will examine some structures which can not appear as well as possible metrics on the edges of a tropical curve, and another geometric object arising from these metrics.
