A Riemann-Roch theorem in tropical geometry. (English) Zbl 1187.14066
Recently, M. Baker and S. Norine [Adv. Math. 215, 766–788 (2007; Zbl 1124.05049)] have proven a Riemann–Roch theorem for graphs. The authors extend this result to metric graphs and thus establish a Riemann–Roch theorem for divisors on (abstract) tropical curves. Their proof relies on the result of Baker and Norine; a different (independent) proof of the Riemann–Roch theorem for tropical curves is given by G. Mikhalkin and I. Zharkov [Contemp. Math. 465, 203–230 (2008; Zbl 1152.14028)].
