An invitation to tropical geometry

It is by now more than a decade that tropical geometry is establishing itself as an area on its own right at the crossroads of algebra, analysis, combinatorics and geometry. Tropical geometry can be viewed as a combinatorial counterpart of algebraic geometry. As such it provides a wealth of new tools for solving longstanding problems and it allows a systematic study of discrete structures inherent to seemingly distant geometric situations. To exemplify these diverse roles of tropical geometry we present results on classical discriminants obtained by tropicalization and show how tropical geometry sheds new light on De Concini-Procesi compactifications.
