Mirror symmetry and tropical geometry reading group

This reading group aims at exploring the links between tropical geometry and mirror symmetry. We will follow quite closely (up to some action of the symmetric group of some subsets of the (sub)sections) the book [5]. The ultimate goal is to go through the first three chapters of the book. The format would be the following: each talk would be between one hour and one hour and a half long, we will meet every two weeks (alternating between Chemnitz and Leipzig) for two or three talks in a row - this depends mostly on the audience and the (hopefully non-empty!) intersection of our availabilities. It would be nice (if you have time!) if everyone could write down their talk in TeX in such a way we can put everything together afterwards.
