Classifcation of Conics in the Tropical Projective Plane Classifcation of Conics in the Tropical Projective Plane

by Ellis, Amanda 1983-

Abstract (Summary)
This paper defines tropical projective space, TP^n, and the tropical general linear group TPGL(n). After discussing some simple examples of tropical polynomials and their hypersurfaces, a strategy is given for finding all conics in the tropical projective plane. The classification of conics and an analysis of the coefficient space corresponding to such conics is given.
