Tropical Canonical Curves of Genus Four, Graph Curves and Berkovich Skeleta

Madhusudan Manjunath (Berkeley)

The talk starts with a brief introduction to canonical curves. We then characterize tropicalizations of a canonical curve of genus four over a non-archimedean field in terms of its reduction over the residue field. This is joint work with Bo Lin, Ralph Morrison and Bernd Sturmfels.
