Again its (tautological) integer affine-linear structure encodes the tropical structure on TPn .

The complement TPn r Rn consists of (n + 1) divisors called the boundary divisors and isomorphic to TPn−1 .
Introduction to Tropical Geometry (notes from the IMPA lectures in Summer 2007)
Points of sedentarity k are thus divided into (cid:18)n + 1 k (cid:19) strata that correspond to the k -dimensional faces of the (topological) n-simplex TPn .
Introduction to Tropical Geometry (notes from the IMPA lectures in Summer 2007)
We may define the pro jective degree of a k -cycle A ⊂ TPn by computing its intersection number with one of the boundary TPn−k .
Introduction to Tropical Geometry (notes from the IMPA lectures in Summer 2007)
Instead of giving the definition of the intersection number in this boundary case (which is also possible, but more complicated) we may choose yet another (non-boundary and easier to use) representative of TPn−k .
