Analytic and tropical theta functions

Tropical Geometry, Amoebas and Polytopes

13 March 15:30 - 16:30

Joe Rabinoff - Georgia Institute of Technology

I'll give an account of the relationship between non-Archimedean analytic theta functions and tropical theta functions, and in particular the Riemann theta functions. I'll be very explicit in the case of the Jacobian of a Mumford curve. This gives a tropical tool for constructing sections of line bundles on abelian varieties with prescribed behavior on the skeleton. This work is joint with Tyler Foster, Farbod Shokrieh, and Alejandro Soto.
