Algebraic and topological cycles in tropical and complex geometry
About the project
This project focuses on the connections between geometry and combinatorics, provided specifically by tropical geometry. Tropical geometry is a relatively new field with powerful applications to other areas of mathematics and beyond. Perhaps most well known are the applications to algebraic, symplectic, enumerative, and discrete geometries. Additionally there are connections to number theory, statistical models, optimisation, thermodynamics, computer science, mathematical physics and mathematical biology.
- topology of real algebraic varieties
- algebraic geometry of discrete structures (matroids and combinatorial designs)
There will be one phd and one postdoc position available in the group starting fall of 2018. Stayed tuned for more information!
