Tame topology and Complex Analytic Geometry

Sergei Starchenko

University of Notre Dame, USA   -

In early 1980's logicians L. van den Dries, A. Pillay and C.Steinhorn introduced o-minimal structures that can be viewed as a Model Theoretic solution to Grothendieck's program of developing tame topology.

In this talk we start with a brief discussion of Grothendick's idea of tame topology. As examples we consider semi-algebraic and sub-analytic geometries. We will also demonstrate as the tameness of sub-analytic sets can be used in the context of Complex Analytic Geometry.

Joint work with Y.Peterzil.
