Faithful tropicalization of hypertoric varieties
MetadataShow full item record
The hypertoric variety M_A defined by an arrangement A of affine hyperplanes admits a natural tropicalization, induced by its embedding in a Lawrence toric variety. In this thesis, we explicitly describe the polyhedral structure of this tropicalization and calculate the fibers of the tropicalization map. Using a recent result of Gubler, Rabinoff, and Werner, we prove that there is a continuous section of the tropicalization map.
