Is the max-plus algebra an example of tropical mathematics or is it an independent structure? How can we turn a max-plus algebra into tropical geometry or viceversa-if possible?

It would be helpful if we know how much tropical geometry you know. What would you consider "being turned into tropical geometry?" –  Grumpy Parsnip Apr 29 '13 at 18:08
    
I have read the "classical" reviews in the arxiv for newbies. I think I understand now that min-plus/max-plus algebras are both tropical, but I wonder if they are "isomorphic" somehow... –  riemannium May 1 '13 at 16:12

A max-plus algebra is a tropical algebra. See: http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/math/pdf/0507/0507014v1.pdf
