Tropical geometry is a relatively recent area of mathematics with strong applications to algebraic geometry, mirror symmetry, combinatorics, mathematical biology and enumerative geometry among others. It manipulates, in a purely combinatorial way, geometric objects that take over the role of classical algebraic varieties. In this talk, we present an elementary introduction to the subject.
