Geometry in the tropical limit
Abstract
Complex algebraic varieties become easy piecewiselinear objects after passing to the socalled tropical limit. Geometry of these limiting objects is known as tropical geometry. In this short survey we take a look at motivation and intuition behind this limit and consider a few simple examples of correspondence principle between classical and tropical geometries.
