Tropical homology


Tropical geometry can be seen as an algebraic geometry based on tropical numbers. The role of algebraic varieties in tropical geometry is played by certain piecewise-linear objects, called tropical varieties. Under some assumptions, a tropical variety can be approximated by a one-parametric family of complex varieties, which provides an important link between complex and tropical geometries. The purpose of this talk is to discuss tropical homology together with its relations to Hodge decompositions (respectively, homology) in complex (respectively, real) world.
