Abstract/Media

In algebraic geometry, enumerative problems are usually studied by constructing moduli spaces of curves or stable maps to some variety. In the tropical world the corresponding spaces have only been constructed so far for rational curves in a real vector space. We will compare the enumerative results from these two set-ups and discuss some work in progress to extend the construction of the tropical moduli spaces to cases of curves of higher genus or whose ambient spaces are more general tropical varieties than vector spaces.
