Title: Berkovich skeleta and birational geometry
Authors: Nicaise, J
Item Type: Conference Paper
Abstract: We give a survey of joint work with Mircea Mustac{t}u{a} and Chenyang Xu on the connections between the geometry of Berkovich spaces over the field of Laurent series and the birational geometry of one-parameter degenerations of smooth projective varieties. The central objects in our theory are the weight function and the essential skeleton of the degeneration. We tried to keep the text self-contained, so that it can serve as an introduction to Berkovich geometry for birational geometers.
