Program Description:
Mirror symmetry, which first emerged in the string theory literature in the 1980s, predicts a deep and surprising relationship between algebraic and symplectic geometry.  An adiabatic limit of ordinary (algebraic or symplectic) geometry produces a piecewise-linear geometry known as tropical geometry which can be used to study mirror symmetry.  This two-week workshop will bring together a group of researchers at all career stages, with expertise in mirror symmetry, tropical geometry, the tropical-to-algebraic correspondence, and the tropical-to-symplectic correspondence. There will be a small number of scheduled talks, with the majority of time set aside for informal discussion and collaboration.
