Abstract: 

Tropical Geometry is said to be the combinatorial shadow of
algebraic geometry, where algebraic varieties are replaced by
combinatorial objects, whose combinatorial properties reflect the
geometric properties of algebraic varieties.
In this talk we intend to give an elementary introduction, with emphasis
on plane tropical curves which are piecewise linear graphs on the the real
plane, with applications in enumerative geometry of curves.
