"Tropical Geometry of Curves" - 

Tropical geometry is a new and exciting field of math which
creates a link between algebraic geometry and combinatorics. As a
result of this connection, surprising insights have developed in both
areas. In this talk, I will show you how to carry out the
tropicalization process for curves. This takes in an algebraic curve,
and associates to it a metric graph. Even in this low-dimensional
case, it is not easy to state a general algorithm. I will present a
result for doing this in the special case of superelliptic curves.
