|The purpose of the talk is to make an introduction to tropical geometry, a new mathematical domain which has undergone a spectacular progress during the last nine years. In tropical geometry, algebro-geometric objects are replaced with piecewise-linear ones. For example, the tropical curves in the plane
are certain rectilinear graphs. We will present the basic tropical notions and the first results in tropical geometry limiting ourselves to planar tropical curves.|
