Title:  Tropical Linear Series
Abstract:  In the past decade, many researchers have become interested in geometric objects defined over semirings, rather than rings.  We will discuss some of the pathologies that arise when one attempts algebraic constructions in this setting.  We will provide a definition of tropical linear series, analogous to linear series on an algebraic curve, and pose some of the many open questions that have been vexing us for years.
