Abstract:
Tropical ideals are algebro-combinatorial objects introduced with the aim of giving tropical geometry a solid algebraic foundation. These ideals over the semiring of tropical polynomials have a rich structure dictated by a sequence of ‘compatible’ matroids, and satisfy many desirable properties. This minicourse will give a basic introduction to tropical ideals, discuss some of their main properties, and point out some of the main open questions in this direction.
