Real-valued smooth differential forms on Berkovich analytic spaces were introduced by Chambert-Loir and Ducros. They show many fundamental properties analogous to smooth real differential forms on complex manifolds, which are used for example in Arakelov geometry. In particular, these forms define a real valued bigraded cohomology theory for Berkovich analytic space, called tropical Dolbeault cohomology. I will explain the definition and properties of these forms and their link to tropical geometry. I will then talk about results regarding the tropical Dolbeault cohomology of varietes and in particular curves. In particular, I will look at finite dimensionality and Poincar\'e duality.
