Abstract :

An important theme in mathematics consists of relating equations to geometric objects.

For example, an equation such as $x+y=1$ can describe a line in the real plane.

However, it can also describe other geometric objects, such as a complex "line" or

a "tropical line", where the latter looks like three rays in the plane emanating from the

origin. I will describe how such geometric objects are related. Time permitting,

I will also describe how tropical and even non-Archimedean geometry can arise as

a limit of classical geometry.
