Exploiting a connection between amoebas and tropical curves we devise a method to compute tropical curves using numerical algebraic geometry, implement a heuristic algorithm, and apply this to several examples at the boundary of the capabilities of symbolic methods. (Joint work with Anders Jensen and Josephine Yu.)
