A tropical complex is a Delta-complex together with some additional numerical data, which come from a semistable degeneration of a variety. Tropical complexes generalize to higher dimensions some of the analogies between curves and graphs. I will introduce tropical complexes and explain how they relate to classical algebraic geometry.
