Title: Tropical Implicitization and Elimination

Abstract: Implicitization is the problem of computing the defining ideal of the image of a polynomial map, and elimination is the problem of computing the defining ideal of the projection of an algebraic variety.  In this talk, I will show how to apply tropical methods to these problems.  For generic cases, we can use polyhedral computations to construct the tropical varieties of the unknown ideals without computing the ideal.
