This workshop will concentrate on tropical methods in Combinatorics and Algebra. Some of the topics we expect to explore are:
- Tropical ideas in combinatorial linear algebra, such as tropical convexity, tropical linear spaces and oriented matroids, tropical matrix algebra and its applications.
- Tropical methods in combinatorial representation theory, including both discovery of new formulas and improved understanding of old ones.
- Computational issues, including both how to compute tropical objects and how to use tropical tools in other computational settings.
- Applications of tropical methods in algebraic statistics.
