Introduction to tropical enumerative geometry

Because some international students expressed an interest, the class will be held in english. Of course, questions can be asked in German any time, and the teachers know German well, so this is not an obstruction for any German speaking student.

If you have questions about the class, please contact Hannah Markwig.

The class takes place Monday 14-16 in N14 (except for June 26, then the room is S08).

Please register at urm:


The class builds on the following two sets of notes:


Renzo Cavalieri's Notes

There will be oral exams in the next term-free time.
