Specialization of linear systems from curves to graphs

Matthew Baker

Appendix: Brian Conrad

Vol. 2 (2008), No. 6, 613–653
Abstract

We investigate the interplay between linear systems on curves and graphs in the context of specialization of divisors on an arithmetic surface. We also provide some applications of our results to graph theory, arithmetic geometry, and tropical geometry.

Keywords
arithmetic surface, specialization, dual graph, reduction graph, Brill–Noether theory, Weierstrass point, tropical geometry
