Abstract or Additional Information

In the recent years, there has been a lot of effort dedicated to developing the necessary tools for commutative algebra using different frameworks, among which are prime congruences, tropical ideals, tropical schemes. These approaches allows for the exploration of the  properties of tropicalized spaces without tying them up to the original varieties and working with geometric structures inherently defined in characteristic one (that is, additively idempotent) semifields. In this talk we explore the relationship between tropical ideals and congruences to conclude that the variety of a non-zero prime (tropical) ideal is either empty or consists of a single point.
