# Faithful realizability of tropical curves

@article{Cheung2014FaithfulRO, title={Faithful realizability of tropical curves}, author={Man-Wai Cheung and Lorenzo Fantini and Jennifer Park and Martin Ulirsch}, journal={arXiv: Algebraic Geometry}, year={2014} }

We study whether a given tropical curve $\Gamma$ in $\mathbb{R}^n$ can be realized as the tropicalization of an algebraic curve whose non-archimedean skeleton is faithfully represented by $\Gamma$. We give an affirmative answer to this question for a large class of tropical curves that includes all trivalent tropical curves, but also many tropical curves of higher valence. We then deduce that for every metric graph $G$ with rational edge lengths there exists a smooth algebraic curve in a toric… Expand
