Abstract: Tropical Geometry is said to be the combinatorial shadow of algebraic geometry, where algebraic varieties are replaced by combinatorial objects, whose combinatorial properties reflect the geometric properties of algebraic varieties.
In this talk we intend to give an elementary introduction, with emphasis on plane tropical curves which are piecewise linear graphs on the the real plane, with applications in enumerative geometry of curves.
