Part of the Simons Symposia book series (SISY)


We discuss linear series on tropical curves and their relation to classical algebraic geometry, describe the main techniques of the subject, and survey some of the recent major developments in the field, with an emphasis on applications to problems in Brill–Noether theory and arithmetic geometry.
