Patchworking and Tropical Compactifications
- Paul Vater (MPI MiS, Leipzig, Germany)
- Lars Kastner
We present an implementation of Viro's patchworking using tropical hypersurfaces, as well as an efficient way to compute the Z_2 homology of the resulting algebraic hypersurface. We will describe how to construct cellular sheaves in polymake, in order to compute tropical homology.
