Tropical convex hull of convex sets
Attention: this talk has to be cancelled
Tropical convex hulls of sets of points in R^n are called tropical polytopes. These have been deeply study in the past years in various areas of research. In this talk I will illustrate results concerning instead tropical convex hulls of convex sets. I will illustrate their properties and apply the obtained result to prove the tropical analogue of a classical inequality for the degree of a curve.
