DESCRIPTION:Title: A s
mooth compactification of genus two curves in projective space\nby Luc
a Battistella (University of Heidelberg) as part of Tropical Geometry in Z
oom TGiZ\n\n\nAbstract\nQuestions of enumerative geometry can often be tra
nslated into problems of intersection theory on a compact moduli space of
curves in projective space. Kontsevich's stable maps work extraordinarily
well when the curves are rational\, but in higher genus the burden of dege
nerate contributions is heavily felt\, as the moduli space acquires severa
l boundary components. The closure of the locus of maps with smooth source
curve is interesting but troublesome\, for its functor of points interpre
tation is most often unclear\; on the other hand\, after the work of Li--V
akil--Zinger and Ranganathan--Santos-Parker--Wise in genus one\, points in
the boundary correspond to maps that admit a nice factorisation through s
ome curve with Gorenstein singularities (morally\, contracting any higher
genus subcurve on which the map is constant). The question becomes how to
construct such a universal family of Gorenstein curves. In joint work with
F. Carocci\, we construct one such family in genus two over a logarithmic
modification of the space of admissible covers. I will focus on how tropi
cal geometry determines this logarithmic modification via tropical canonic
al divisors.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Po
lytopes\, wall crossings\, and cluster varieties\nby Man-Wai Cheung (H
arvard University) as part of Tropical Geometry in Zoom TGiZ\n\n\nAbstract
\nCluster varieties are log Calabi-Yau varieties which are a union of alg
ebraic tori glued by birational "mutation" maps. Partial compactification
s of the varieties\, studied by Gross\, Hacking\, Keel\, and Kontsevich\,
generalize the polytope construction of toric varieties. However\, it is n
ot clear from the definitions how to characterize the polytopes giving com
pactifications of cluster varieties. We will show how to describe the comp
actifications easily by broken line convexity. As an application\, we will
see the non-integral vertex in the Newton Okounkov body of Gr(3\,6) comes
from broken line convexity. Further\, we will also see certain positive p
olytopes will give us hints about the Batyrev mirror in the cluster settin
g. The mutations of the polytopes will be related to the almost toric fibr
ation from the symplectic point of view. Finally\, we can see how to exten
d the idea of gluing of tori in Floer theory which then ended up with the
Family Floer Mirror for the del Pezzo surfaces of degree 5 and 6. The talk
will be based on a series of joint works with Bossinger\, Lin\, Magee\, N
ajera-Chavez\, and Vianna.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Tr
opical geometry of Grassmannians and their cluster structure\nby Lara
Bossinger (UNAM Oaxaca) as part of Tropical Geometry in Zoom TGiZ\n\n\nAbs
tract\nThe Grassmannain\, or more precisely its homogeneous coordinate rin
g with respect to the Plücker embedding\, was found to be a cluster algeb
ra by Scott in the early years of cluster theory. Since then\, this cluste
r structure was studied from many different perspectives by a number of ma
thematicians. As the whole subject of cluster algebras broadly speaking di
vides into two main perspectives\, algebraic and geometric\, so do the res
ults regarding Grassmannian. Geometrically\, the Grassmannian contains two
open subschemes that are dual cluster varieties.\n\nInterestingly\, we ca
n find tropical geometry in both directions: from the algebraic point of v
iew\, we discover relations between maximal cones in the tropicalization o
f the defining ideal (what Speyer and Sturmfels call the tropical Grassman
nian) and seeds of the cluster algebra. From the geometric point of view\,
due to work of Fock--Goncharov followed by work of Gross--Hacking--Keel--
Kontsevich we know that the scheme theoretic tropical points of the cluste
r varieties parametrize functions on the Grassmannian.\n\nIn this talk I a

ure for the Grassmannian from the algebraic and the geometric point of vie

DESCRIPTION:Title: De
formations of bitangent classes of tropical quartic curves\nby Alheydi
s Geiger (Universität Tübingen) as part of Tropical Geometry in Zoom TGi
Z\n\n\nAbstract\nOver an algebraically closed field a smooth quartic curve
has 28 bitangent lines. Plücker proved that over the real numbers we hav
e either 4\, 8\, 16 or 28 real bitangents to a real quartic curve. A tropi
cal smooth quartic curve has exactly 7 bitangent classes which each lift e
ither 0 or 4 times over the real numbers. The shapes of these bitangent cl
asses have been classified by Markwig and Cueto in 2020\, who also determi
ned their real lifting conditions.\nHowever\, for a fixed unimodular trian
gulation different choices of coefficients imply different edge lengths of
the quartic and these can change the shape of the 7 bitangent classes and
might therefore influence their real lifting conditions.\nIn order to pro
ve Plückers Theorem about the number of real bitangents tropically\, we h
ave to study these deformations of the bitangent shapes. In a joint work w
ith Marta Panizzut we develope a polymake extension\, which computes the t
ropical bitangents. For this we determine two refinements of the secondary
fan: one for which the bitangent shapes in each cone stay constant and on
e for which the lifting conditions in each cone stay constant.\nThis is st
ill work in progress\, but there will be a small software demonstration.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Th

rithmetically interesting field (say\, a number field or p-adic field)\, t
he étale fundamental group of X encodes all the information about rationa
l points on X. In this talk I will formulate a tropical analogue of the se
ction conjecture and explain how to use methods from low-dimensional topol
ogy and moduli theory to prove many cases of it. As a byproduct\, I'll con
struct many examples of curves for which the section conjecture is true\,
in interesting ways. For example\, I will explain how to prove the section
conjecture for the generic curve\, and for the generic curve with a ratio
nal divisor class\, as well as how to construct curves over p-adic fields
which satisfy the section conjecture for geometric reasons. This is joint

The Billera-Holmes-Vogtmann (BHV) space is a well-studied moduli space of
phylogenetic trees that appears in many scientific disciplines\, including
computational biology\, computer vision\, combinatorics\, and category th

a version of the Grassmannian using tropical geometry\, endowing the space
of phylogenetic trees with a tropical structure\, which turns out to be a
dvantageous for computational studies. In this talk\, I will present the c

DESCRIPTION:Title: Th
e Ceresa class: tropical\, topological\, and algebraic\nby Daniel Core
y (University of Wisconsin-Madison) as part of Tropical Geometry in Zoom T
GiZ\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Ceresa cycle is an algebraic cycle attached to a sm
ooth algebraic curve. It is homologically trivial but not algebraically eq
uivalent to zero for a very general curve. In this sense\, it is one of th
e simplest algebraic cycles that goes ``beyond homology.'' The image of th
e Ceresa cycle under a certain cycle class map produces a class in étale
homology called the Ceresa class. We define the Ceresa class for a tropica
l curve and for a product of commuting Dehn twists on a topological surfac
e. We relate these to the Ceresa class of a smooth algebraic curve over C(
(t)). Our main result is that the Ceresa class in each of these settings i
s torsion. Nevertheless\, this class is readily computable\, frequently no
nzero\, and implies nontriviality of the Ceresa cycle when nonzero. This i

ringy invariants and toric Artin stacks\nby Jeremy Usatine (Brown Univ

odge numbers are certain generalizations\, to the singular setting\, of Ho
dge numbers. Unlike usual Hodge numbers\, stringy Hodge numbers are not de
fined as dimensions of cohomology groups. Nonetheless\, an open conjecture
of Batyrev's predicts that stringy Hodge numbers are nonnegative. In the
special case of varieties with only quotient singularities\, Yasuda proved
Batyrev's conjecture by showing that the stringy Hodge numbers are given
by orbifold cohomology. For more general singularities\, a similar cohomol

\nby Shiyue Li (Brown University) as part of Tropical Geometry in Zoom

volume 1 is the dual complex of the divisor of singular curves in Hassett
’s moduli space of weighted stable genus g curves. One can derive plenty
of topological properties of the Hassett spaces by studying the topology
of these dual complexes. In this talk\, we show that the spaces of tropica

us greater than zero and all rational weights\, under the framework of sym
metric Delta-complexes and via a result by Allcock-Corey-Payne 19. We also
calculate the Euler characteristics of these spaces and the top weight Eu

DESCRIPTION:Title: Co
mpactifications of moduli of points and lines in the (tropical) plane\
nby Jenia Tevelev (University of Massachusetts Amherst) as part of Tropica
l Geometry in Zoom TGiZ\n\n\nAbstract\nProjective duality identifies modul
i spaces of points and lines in the projective plane. The latter space adm
its Kapranov's Chow quotient compactification\, studied also by Lafforgue\
, Hacking-Keel-Tevelev\, and Alexeev\, which gives an example of a KSBA mo
duli space of stable surfaces: it carries a family of reducible degenerati
ons of the projective plane with "broken lines". From the tropical perspec
tive\, these degenerations are encoded in matroid decompositions and tropi
cal planes and their moduli space in the Dressian and the tropical Grasman
nian. In 1991\, Gerritzen and Piwek proposed a dual perspective\, a compac
t moduli space parametrizing reducible degenerations of the projective pla
ne with n smooth points. In a joint paper with Luca Schaffler\, we investi
gate the extension of projective duality to degenerations\, answering a qu
estion of Kapranov.\n

iform bounds for torsion packets on tropical curves\nby Harry Richman
(University of Washington) as part of Tropical Geometry in Zoom TGiZ\n\n\n
Abstract\nSay two points x\, y on an algebraic curve are in the same torsi
on packet if [x - y] is a torsion element of the Jacobian. In genus 0 and
1\, torsion packets have infinitely many points. In higher genus\, a theor
em of Raynaud states that all torsion packets are finite. It was long conj
ectured\, and only recently proven*\, that the size of a torsion packet is
bounded uniformly in terms of the genus of the underlying curve. We study
the tropical analogue of this construction for a metric graph. On a highe
r genus metric graph\, torsion packets are not always finite\, but they ar
e finite under an additional "genericity" assumption on the edge lengths.
Under this genericity assumption\, the torsion packets satisfy a uniform b
ound in terms of the genus of the underlying graph. (*by Kuehne and Looper
-Silverman-Wilmes in 2021)\n

luative invariants for large classes of matroids\nby Benjamin Schröte
r (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt) as part of Tropical Geometry in Zoom TGi
Z\n\n\nAbstract\nValuations on polytopes are maps that combine the geometr
y of polytopes with relations in a group. It turns out that many important
invariants of matroids are valuative on the collection of matroid base po
lytopes\, e.g.\, the Tutte polynomial and its specializations or the Hilbe
rt–Poincaré series of the Chow ring of a matroid.\n\nIn this talk I wil
l present a framework that allows us to compute such invariants on large c
lasses of matroids\, e.g.\, sparse paving and elementary split matroids\,
explicitly. The concept of split matroids introduced by Joswig and myself
is relatively new. However\, this class appears naturally in this context.
Moreover\, (sparse) paving matroids are split. I will demonstrate the fra
mework by looking at Ehrhart polynomials\, relations in Chow rings of comb
inatorial geometries\, and further examples.\n\nThis talk is based on the
preprint `Valuative invariants for large classes of matroids' which is joi
nt work with Luis Ferroni.\n
