DESCRIPTION:Title: Brill--Noether theory of Prym varieties\nby Yoav Len (University of S
t Andrews) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropical Geometry
Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nI will discuss combinatorial aspects of Prym varie
ties\, a class of Abelian varieties that shows up in the presence of doubl
e covers of curves. Pryms have deep connections with torsion points of Jac
obians\, bi-tangent lines\, and spin structures. As I will explain\, probl
ems concerning Pryms may be reduced\, via tropical geometry\, to combinato
rial games on graphs. Consequently we obtain new results in the geometry o
f special algebraic curves and bounds on dimensions of certain Brill–Noe
ther loci.\n

f (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropical Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstra
ct\nThe talk is devoted to a class of real plane algebraic curves\nwhich w
e call expressive.\nThese are the curves whose defining polynomial has the
smallest\nnumber of critical points allowed by the topology of the real
point set.\nThis concept can be viewed as a global version of the notion o
f\na real morsification of an isolated real plane curve singularity.\nWe p
rovide a characterization of expressive curves and describe several\nconst
ructions that produce a large number of example of expressive\ncurves. Fin
ally\, we discuss further potential developments\ntowards combinatorics of
divides\, topology of links at infinity\,\nmutations of quivers etc.\nJoi

nts and a section $\\sigma$ of $\\pi$ through its smooth locus. \nLet $\\
mu$ and $\\mathcal{L}$ be a polarization and an invertible\nsheaf of degre
e $k$ on $\\mathcal{C}/B$. The Abel map $\\alpha^{d}_{\\mathcal{L}}$ is th
e rational map \n$\\alpha^{d}_{\\mathcal{L}}\\colon \\mathcal{C}^d \\dashr
ightarrow \\overline{\\mathcal{J}}_{\\mu}^{\\sigma}$ taking a tuple \nof p

cal{O}_{C_b}(Q_1+\\dots+Q_d-d\\sigma(b))\\otimes \\mathcal{L}|_{C_b}$. Her
e $\\overline{\\mathcal{J}}_{\\mu}^{\\sigma}$ denotes Esteves compactified
Jacobian.\nAn interesting question is to find an explicit resolution of t
he map $\\alpha^{d}_{\\mathcal{L}}$.\nWe translate this problem into an ex
plicit combinatorial problem by means of tropical and toric geometry. The
solution of the combinatorial problem gives rise to an explicit resolutio
n of the Abel map. We are able to use this technique to construct all the
degree-$1$ Abel maps and give a resolution of the degree-$2$ Abel-Jacobi m

s of given geometric genus in a given linear system on an algebraic surfac

in 1986 for the projective plane in characteristic zero. In this talk\, I
will give a brief overview of the ideas involved\, and describe a tropica
l approach to studying degererations of plane curves\, which leads to a ne

DESCRIPTION:Title: Tropical ideals\nby Felipe Rincón (Queen Mary University of London)
as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropical Geometry Seminar\n\
n\nAbstract\nTropical ideals are combinatorial objects introduced with the
aim of giving tropical geometry a solid algebraic foundation. They can be
thought of as combinatorial generalizations of the possible collections o
f subsets arising as the supports of all polynomials in an ideal. In gener
al\, their structure is dictated by a sequence of 'compatible' matroids. I
n this talk I will introduce and motivate the notion of tropical ideals\,
and I will discuss work studying some of their main properties and their p

DESCRIPTION:Title: Theta surfaces\nby Bernd Sturmfels (MPI-Leipzig) as part of (LAGARTOS
) Latin American Real and Tropical Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nA theta
surface in affine 3-space is the zero set of a Riemann theta function in
genus 3. This includes surfaces arising from special plane quartics that a
re singular or reducible. Lie and Poincaré showed that theta surfaces are
precisely the surfaces of double translation\, i.e. obtained as the Minko
wski sum of two space curves in two different ways. These curves are param
etrized by abelian integrals\, so they are usually not algebraic. We prese
nt a new view on this classical topic through the lens of computation. We
discuss practical tools for passing between quartic curves and their theta
surfaces\, and we develop the numerical algebraic geometry of degeneratio
ns of theta functions. This is joint work with Daniele Agostini\, Turku Ce
lik and Julia Struwe.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Counting bitangents of plane quartics - tropical\, real and arithmetic\nby Hannah Markwig (U. Tübingen) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American
Real and Tropical Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nA smooth plane quartic d
efined over the complex numbers has precisely\n28 bitangents. This result
goes back to Pluecker. In the tropical world\,\nthe situation is different
. One can define equivalence classes of\ntropical bitangents of which ther
e are seven\, and each has 4 lifts over\nthe complex numbers. Over the rea
ls\, we can have 4\, 8\, 16 or 28\nbitangents. The avoidance locus of a re
al quartic is the set in the dual\nplane consisting of all lines which do
not meet the quartic. Every\nconnected component of the avoidance locus ha
s precisely 4 bitangents in its closure. For any field k of characteristic
not equal to 2 and\nwith a non-Archimedean valuation which allows us to t
ropicalize\, we\nshow that a tropical bitangent class of a quartic either
has 0 or 4\nlifts over k. This way of grouping into sets of 4 which exis
ts\ntropically and over the reals is intimately connected: roughly\, tropi
cal\nbitangent classes can be viewed as tropicalizations of closures of\n
connected components of the avoidance locus. Arithmetic counts offer a\nb
ridge connecting real and complex counts\, and we investigate how\ntropic
al geometry can be used to study this bridge.\n\nThis talk is based on joi
nt work with Maria Angelica Cueto\, and on joint\nwork in progress with Sa

eorg Loho (U. Kassel) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropic

algebraic combinatorics\nsurrounding the various objects associated with
a generic real matrix.\nExamples include regular triangulations of the pro
duct of two simplices\,\ncoherent matching fields\, and realizable oriente
d matroids.\nIn this talk\, we will extend the theory by skipping the matr
ix and\nstarting with an arbitrary triangulation of the product of two sim
plices\ninstead. In particular\, we show that every polyhedral matching fi
eld\ninduces oriented matroids. The oriented matroid is composed of\ncompa
tible chirotopes on the cells in a matroid subdivision of the\nhypersimple
x. Furthermore\, we give a corresponding topological\nconstruction using V
iro’s patchworking. This allows to derive a\nrepresentation of the orien
ted matroid as a pseudosphere arrangement\nfrom a fine mixed subdivision.\

e the real part of a tropical variety with a real phase\nstructure. This d
etermines a closed chain in an appropriate homology\ntheory. In the case w
hen the tropical variety is non-singular\, the real\npart is a PL-manifold
. Moreover\, for tropical manifolds equipped with\nreal phase structures w
e can apply the same spectral sequence for\nhypersurfaces\, obtained by Re

DESCRIPTION:Title: Tropical affine manifolds in mirror symmetry and Berkovich geometry\
nby Enrica Mazzon (MPI Bonn) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and
Tropical Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nMirror symmetry is a fast-moving
research area at the boundary between mathematics and theoretical physics
. Originated from observations in string theory\, it suggests that certain
geometrical objects (complex Calabi-Yau manifolds) should come in pairs\,
in the sense that each of them has a mirror partner and the two share int
eresting geometrical properties.\n\nIn this talk\, I will introduce some n
otions relating mirror symmetry to tropical geometry\, inspired by the wor
k of Kontsevich-Soibelman and Gross-Siebert. In particular\, I will focus
on the construction of a so-called “tropical affine manifold” using me
thods of non-archimedean geometry\, and the guiding example will be the ca
se of K3 surfaces and some hyper-Kähler varieties. This is based on a joi
nt work with Morgan Brown and a work in progress with Léonard Pille-Schne
ider.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Piecewise polynomials and the moduli space of curves\nby Dhruv Ranga
nathan (U. Cambridge) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropic
al Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nTropical geometry selects natural “pr
incipal contributions” in an intersection of two varieties inside a thir
d\, provided the three objects are equipped with a tropicalization (also k
nown as a logarithmic structure). When one is working inside the moduli sp
ace of curves\, these contributions are geometrically meaningful. I’ll t
ry to explain both why they are interesting (via joint work with Renzo Cav
alieri and Hannah Markwig) and how to understand them conceptually (via jo
int work with Sam Molcho). The main protagonist in the story is the ring o
f piecewise polynomial functions on the tropicalization of the moduli spac
e of curves.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Lift theorems for representations of matroids over pastures\nby Matt
Baker (Georgia Tech) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropic
al Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nGiven a partial field P\, the Lift Theo
rem of Pendavingh and van Zwam produces a partial field L(P) and a homomor
phism L(P) -> P with the property that if a matroid is representable over
P then it is also representable over L(P). We will formulate a generalizat
ion of the Pendavingh-van Zwam Lift Theorem to pastures\, which generalize
both partial fields and hyperfields\, and explore some of its combinatori
al implications. For certain restricted classes of matroids (e.g. ternary
matroids)\, we obtain a stronger lift theorem which is essentially sharp.
Even in the case of partial fields\, our method of proof is different from
that of Pendavingh and van Zwam and we're able to prove some new results.

DESCRIPTION:Title: Cluster algebras\, deformation theory and beyond\nby Alfredo Najera
(UNAM-Oaxaca) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropical Geome
try Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe purpose of this talk is to explain a fruitf
ul interaction of ideas/constructions coming from the theory of cluster
algebras\, representation theory of quivers and deformation theory.\n\nTh
e representation theory of quivers is a well developed branch of mathemat
ics that has been very active for nearly 50 years. The theory of cluster
algebras is much younger\, it was initiated by Fomin and Zelevinsky in 20
01. Various important developments in these theories have emerged in the
last 15 years thanks to the deep relation that exists in between them. A
fter a gentle introduction to this circle of ideas I will recall the cons
truction of a simplicial complex K(A) -- the tau-tilting complex-- associa
ted to a finite dimensional path algebra A. Then I will report on one asp
ect of work-in-progress with Nathan Ilten and Hipólito Treffinger. We sh
ow that if K(A) is a cluster complex of finite type then the associated
cluster algebra with universal coefficients is equal to a canonically ide
ntified subfamily of the semiuniversal family for the Stanley-Reisner rin
g of K(A). Time permitting\, and depending on the audience's preference\,
I will elaborate either on some aspects of the "non-cluster" case (name
ly\, when K(A) is not a cluster complex) or on the interpretation of thes
e results from the point of view of tropical geometry.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Iterated p-adic integration on semistable curves\nby Eric Katz (Ohio
State University) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropical
Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nHow do you integrate a 1-form on an algebr
aic curve over the p-adic numbers? One can integrate locally\, but because
the topology is totally disconnected\, it's not possible to perform analy
tic continuation. For good reduction curves\, this question was answered b
y Coleman who introduced analytic continuation by Frobenius. For bad reduc
tion curves\, there are two notions of integration: a local theory that is
easy to compute\; and a global single-valued theory that is useful for nu
mber theoretic applications. We discuss the relationship between these int
egration theories\, concentrating on the p-adic analogue of Chen's iterate
d integration which is important for the non-Abelian Chabauty method. We e
xplain how to use combinatorial ideas\, informed by tropical geometry and
Hodge theory\, to compare the two integration theories and outline an expl
icit approach to computing these integrals. This is joint work with Daniel
Litt.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the topology of phase tropical varieties and beyond\nby Mounir Ni
sse (Xiamen University Malaysia) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real
and Tropical Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nTropical geometry is a recen
t area of mathematics that can be seen as a limiting aspect (or "degenera
tion") of algebraic geometry. For example complex curves viewed as Riema
nn surfaces turn to metric graphs (one dimensional combinatorial object)
\, and $n$-dimensional complex varieties turn to $n$-dimensional polyhe
dral complexes with some properties. \n\nI will first give an overview\,
and I will recall the definition of phase tropical varieties\, their amo
ebas and coamoebas. After that\, I will focus on non-singular algebraic c
urves in $(\\mathbb{C}^*)^n$ with $n\\geq 2$ and explain how they degenera
te onto phase tropical curves that are topological manifolds. Such proper
ties were conjectured in a talk by O. Viro in a workshop at MSRI in 2009
(Viro's conjecture is very general). \n\nThen\, I will discuss and explain
how we show this fact\, under certain conditions\, for $k$-dimensional p
hase tropical variety in $(\\mathbb{C}^*)^{2k}$\, and I will ask some inte
resting questions.\n

root counts of square polynomial systems using methods from tropical and n
on-archimedean geometry. The main theoretical ingredient is a generalizati
on of a famous theorem by Bernstein\, Kushnirenko and Khovanskii\, which n
ow says that the behavior of a single well-behaved zero-dimensional tropic
al fiber spreads to an open dense subset. We use this theorem on modificat
ions of the universal polynomial system to obtain generic root counts of d
eterminantal subvarieties of the universal parameter space.\nAn important
role in these generalizations is played by the notion of tropical flatness
\, which allows us to link a single tropical fiber to fibers over an open
dense subset. We also prove a tropical analogue of Grothendieck's generic
flatness theorem\, saying that a given morphism is tropically flat over a
dense open subset.\n

on polytope associated to its defining polynomial. We will prove that the
quadratically refined multiplicity of an intersection point of two tropica

Kentucky) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropical Geometry
Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nI’ll give an overview of some recent work on the
geometry of projectivized toric\nvector bundles. A toric vector bundle is
a vector bundle over a toric variety equipped\nwith an action by the defi
ning torus of the base. As a source of examples\, toric\nvector bundles an
d their projectivizations provide a rich class of spaces that still\nmanag
e to admit a combinatorial characterization. I’ll begin with a recent cl
assification result which shows that a toric vector bundle can be captured
by an\narrangement of points on the Bergman fan of a matroid defined by D
iRocco\, Jabbusch\, and Smith in their work on ”the parliament of polyto
pes” of a vector bundle.\nThen I’ll describe how to extract geometric
information of the projectivization of\nthe toric vector bundle when this
data is nice. I will focus primarily on the Cox\nring of the bundle\, and
the question of whether or not the bundle is a Mori dream\nspace. Then I
’ll describe how these properties interact with natural operations on\nt
oric vector bundles. This involves the geometry of the closely related cla
ss of toric\nflag bundles and tropical flag varieties. This is joint work
with Kiumars Kaveh and\nCourtney George.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Realizability criteria in tropical geometry from symplectic geometry
\nby Jeffrey Hicks (U. Edinburgh) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Rea
l and Tropical Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe realizability problem a
sks if a given tropical subvariety is the tropicalization of some algebrai
c subvariety. Realizability is already an interesting question for curves
in $\\mathbb {R}^3$\, where Mikhalkin exhibited a tropical curve of genus
1 which is non-realizable. In recent independent work\, Mak-Ruddat\, Mates
si\, Mikhalkin\, and I show that for many examples of tropcial subvarieti
es in $\\mathbb {R}^n$ there exists a Lagrangian lift. This is a Lagrangia
n submanifold of $(\\mathbb {C}^*)^n$ whose image under the moment map app
roximates a given tropical subvariety. In particular\, every smooth tropic
al curve in $\\mathbb {R}^n$ can be lifted to a Lagrangian submanifold (in
contrast to the algebraic setting!)\n\n \n\nIn this talk\, I'll discuss w
hat it means to be a Lagrangian lift of a tropical curve. We will then loo
k at what symplectic conditions on the resulting Lagrangian detect realiza
bility of the underlying tropical curve. As an application\, we will prove
that every tropical curve in a tropical abelian surface has a rigid-analy
tic realization.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Tropical degenerations and irrationality of hypersurfaces in products of
projective spaces\nby Johannes Nicaise (Imperial College/KU Leuven) a
s part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropical Geometry Seminar\n\n
\nAbstract\nThe specialization map for stable birational types associates
with every strictly toroidal one-parameter degeneration an obstruction to
the stable rationality of a very general fiber. In many applications\, sui
table degenerations can be constructed by hand\, but there are also cases
where the complexity gets too high to write down explicit equations\, and
one needs to rely on tropical geometry to give a combinatorial description
in terms of regular subdivisions of Newton polytopes. I will illustrate t
his technique for hypersurfaces in products of projective spaces. This is
based on joint work with John Christian Ottem.\n

stract\nThere are eight circles tangent to a given trio of circles\, provi

DESCRIPTION:Title: Weakly smooth forms and Dolbeault cohomology of curves\nby Joe Rabin
off (Duke U.) as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropical Geome
try Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nGubler and I work out a theory of weakly smooth
forms on non-Archimedean analytic spaces closely following the constructi
on of Chambert-Loir and Ducros\, but in which harmonic functions are force
d to be smooth. We call such forms "weakly smooth". We compute the Dolbe
ault cohomology groups of rig-smooth\, compact non-Archimedean curves with
respect to this theory\, and show that they have the expected dimensions
and satisfy Poincaré duality. We carry out this computation by giving an
alternative characterization of weakly smooth forms on curves as pullback
s of certain "smooth forms" on a skeleton of the curve. This yields an is
omorphism between the Dolbeault cohomology of the skeleton\, which can be
computed using standard combinatorial methods\, and the Dolbeault cohomolo
gy of the curve.\n\nThis work is joint with Walter Gubler.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Vector bundles in tropical geometry\nby Andreas Gross (U. Frankfurt)
as part of (LAGARTOS) Latin American Real and Tropical Geometry Seminar\n
\n\nAbstract\nAlthough tropical vector bundles have been introduced by All
ermann ten years ago\, very little has been said about their structure and
their relation to vector bundles on algebraic varieties. I will present r
ecent work with Martin Ulirsch and Dmitry Zakharov that changes exactly th
is in the case of curves: we prove analogues of the Weil-Riemann-Roch theo
rem and the Narasimhan-Seshadri correspondence for tropical vector bundles
on tropical curves. We also show that the non-Archimedean skeleton of the
moduli space of semistable vector bundles on a Tate curve is isomorphic t
o a certain component of the moduli space of semistable tropical vector bu
ndles on its dual metric graph. Time permitting I will also report on work
in progress with Inder Kaur\, Martin Ulirsch\, and Annette Werner and exp
lain some of the difficulties that arise when generalizing beyond the case
of curves to Abelian varieties of arbitrary dimension.\n

upported on a Delaunay polytope. I will introduce the\nHirota variety whic
