This package implements tropical numbers and tropical algebras in Julia. Tropical algebra is also known as the semiring algebra, which is a set $R$ equipped with two binary operations $\oplus$ and $\otimes$, called addition and multiplication, such that:

$(R, \oplus)$ is a monoid with identity element called $\mathbb{0}$;

$(R, \otimes)$ is a monoid with identity element called $\mathbb{1}$;

Addition is commutative;

Multiplication by the additive identity $\mathbb{0}$ annihilates ;

Multiplication left- and right-distributes over addition;

Explicitly stated, $(R, \oplus)$ is a commutative monoid.

Using

A Topical algebra can be described as a tuple $(R, \oplus, \otimes, \mathbb{0}, \mathbb{1})$, where $R$ is the set, $\oplus$ and $\otimes$ are the opeartions and $\mathbb{0}$, $\mathbb{1}$ are their identity element, respectively. In this package, the following tropical algebras are implemented:

TropicalMaxMul should not contain negative numbers. However, this package does not check the data validity. Not only for performance reason, but also for future GPU support.

These packages include unnecessary fields in its tropical numbers, such as isinf. However, Inf and -Inf can be used directly for floating point numbers, which is more memory efficient and computationally cheap. TropicalNumbers is designed for high performance matrix multiplication on both CPU and GPU.
