Abstract: Tropical varieties are certain type polyhedral objects which arise as degenerations of complex algebraic one parameter families. They carry a lot of information inherited from the complex varieties. I will define tropical homology (p,q)-groups and show that in some cases they recover the complex Hodge structures.
