Non-Archimedean and Tropical Geometry (2013)

Date & Time


March 31-April 6, 2013

Organizers: Matt Baker and Sam Payne

This symposium will focus on setting a clear agenda for future developments in the related fields of tropical and nonarchimedean analytic geometry. One of the goals of the meeting will be to produce high quality expository material presenting the methods, results, and ambitions of these active research areas. Another will be to identify problems in other fields of mathematics that could be amenable to tropical and nonarchimedean analytic methods and establish new rigorous links with those neighboring fields.

Topics to be discussed include: (1) specialization inequalities and correspondence theorems for curves, along with potential generalizations to higher dimensional varieties; (2) the recent work of Chambert-Loir and Ducros, which among other things iprovides a nonarchimedean analogue of the Poincar´e-Lelong formula ddc log |f| = div(f); (3) applications of tropical methods to Brill-Noether theory and mirror symmetry; and (4) links between tropical geometry and motivic integration.
