Mini-programme on real analytic/algebraic/o-minimal geometry

Andrei Gabrielov (Purdue U.) is visiting us for a month (until February 8). Among other things, he will explain his recent work with N. Vorobjov on topology of o-minimal sets via approximation.

The exposition, split into several lectures, will serve also as an initiation to the field of semianalytic/subanalitic geometry, accessible to newcomers.

Recommended reading:

  1. E. Bierstone & P. Milman, Semianalytic and subanalytic sets.

The first meeting:

Tuesday, January 15, 2008, 16:00-18:00 (note the unusual time), Room 261 (unless suddenly changed).
