Tropical Plane Curves

Tropical geometry is a combinatorial shadow of classical geometry. Algebraic curves in the tropical plane are dual to triangulations of convex polygons. We discuss the intrinsic geometry of these objects, with focus on the moduli space of metric graphs that represent tropical plane curves. This lectures is based on work with Sarah Brodsky, Michael Joswig and Ralph Morrision from nearly a decade ago (arXiv:1409.4395).
