Dressians, tropical Grassmannians, and their rays

Sven Herrmann / Michael Joswig / David E Speyer
Published Online: 2012-07-20 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/forum-2012-0030


The Dressian Dr(k,n) parametrizes all tropical linear spaces, and it carries a natural fan structure as a subfan of the secondary fan of the hypersimplex Δ(k,n). We explore the combinatorics of the rays of Dr(k,n), that is, the most degenerate tropical planes, for arbitrary k and n. This is related to a new rigidity concept for configurations of n - k points in the tropical k - 1-torus. Additional conditions are given for k = 3. On the way, we compute the entire fan Dr(3,8).

Keywords: Matroid polytopes; Grassmann–Plücker relations
