Abstract: 

In the first part of this talk, I will discuss the reconstructing problem in mirror symmetry, namely how we can construct the mirror partner of a given variety. Although there are many examples in which the costruction is done explicitly, it is usually quite technical and I could not give it in full detail in this seminar. However, I'll try to explain the main ideas behind Kontsevich--Soibelman's construction and the Gross--Siebert's program. In both approaches, a central role is played by scattering diagrams, and in the last part of the talk, I will discuss one of the main results of my thesis which is the definition of the extended tropical vertex group where scattering diagrams can be defined.
