Introductory Lecture for "Number Theory meets Tropical Geometry"
- Sachi Hashimoto
In this introductory lecture, we will study curves over valuated fields and their combinatorial structure. Tropical geometry and number theory study the degeneration of curves in this setting. We give definitions from both fields, discuss semistable models, and give motivation for the following week's lectures.
