MaP-Trop II
A one-day symposium on Matroids, Polytopes and Tropical Geometry
KTH, May 3rd, 2024.
This series of seminars brings together researchers at the intersection of combinatorics and algebraic geometry specifically in the areas of matroid theory, polytopes, toric varieties, and tropical geometry. This is a recurring meeting that alternates between KTH Stockholm and UiO Oslo.
This is the second installation which will take place at KTH, Stockholm. The first meeting was held in Oslo on January 26th, 2024.
Registration
The registration is closed.
