ABSTRACT  |  Scattering and reconstruction of Calabi-Yau manifolds from degeneration data (Ruddat) Starting with combinatorial degeneration data, Gross and Siebert found a canonical formal smoothing of the associated degenerate Calabi-Yau space. This provides a core step in their mirror construction. We explain the basics of this procedure which consists of gluing infinitesimal finite order smoothings by an algorithm that is governed by tropical geometry and so called scattering diagrams.
