Representing matroids over tracts

I’ll explain a generalisation of the notion of representable matroids over fields which allows us to encode a number of important classes of matroids and the relationships between them in terms of simple algebraic objects generalising fields, called tracts, and the morphisms between them. This gives a unified treatment of representable, oriented, regular and valuated matroids. I will then explain how to turn simple algebraic facts about tracts into theorems about the corresponding matroid classes, such as that any binary orientable matroid is regular.
