|Date (JST):||Mon, Dec 06, 2010, 14:00 - 17:00|
|Place:||Seminar Room A|
In the first part, I will give an introduction to tropical curves. It will contain motivation (related to mirror symmetry), relation to toric degeneration and examples.
In the second part, I will talk about the curve counting problem. I will describe how curves in toric varieties and other varieties, including Calabi-Yaus, can be counted through degeneration.
