Subschemes of tropical toric varieties Maclagan, Diane


The tropicalization of a projective toric variety is a topological space that "looks like" the associated polytope. Tropicalizations of subvarieties of a toric variety are polyhedral complexes inside this space.  These encode degenerations of the variety, including toric degenerations.  In this talk I will explain a construction of subchemes of a tropical toric variety, developed with Felipe Rincon based on work of the Giansiracusas.
