Title Re-embeddings of Tropical Plane Curves
Speaker Numan Amin

Tropical geometry can be view as a piece-wise linear shadow of an algebraic geometry. Most of the time, we can drive statements about algebraic varieties by means of their tropicalization but one major difficulty in tropicalization process is its dependence on embedding of an algebraic variety. Therefore, the task to find a good embedding or repairing a bad embedding to obtain a nicer tropicalization is an interesting and essential work for many researchers in this area. In this talk, I will explain the concept of tropical modification and by using it I will explain that how we can re-embed tropical plane curves under certain conditions.
