# Tropical and Non-Archimedean Geometry

A co-publication of the AMS and Centre de Recherches Mathématiques

Over the past decade, it has become apparent
that tropical geometry and non-Archimedean geometry should be studied
in tandem; each subject has a great deal to say about the other.

This volume is a collection of articles dedicated to one or both of
these disciplines. Some of the articles are based, at least in part,
on the authors' lectures at the 2011 Bellairs Workshop in Number
Theory, held from May 6–13, 2011, at the Bellairs Research
Institute, Holetown, Barbados.

Lecture topics covered in this volume include polyhedral structures
on tropical varieties, the structure theory of non-Archimedean curves
(algebraic, analytic, tropical, and formal), uniformization theory for
non-Archimedean curves and abelian varieties, and applications to
Diophantine geometry. Additional articles selected for inclusion in
this volume represent other facets of current research and illuminate
connections between tropical geometry, non-Archimedean geometry, toric
geometry, algebraic graph theory, and algorithmic aspects of systems
of polynomial equations.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in tropical or non-archimedean geometry and algebraic graph theory.
