## Exploded manifolds, holomorphic curves and tropical geometry

##### Abstract:

The category of exploded manifolds is an extension of the smooth category with a good holomorphic curve theory and a `large scale' related to tropical geometry. I will give examples to illustrate the usefulness of working with exploded manifolds in order to study holomorphic curves.
