Comparing an integral to zero, by slicing and stacking

Let $f \colon [0,1] \rightarrow {\mathbb R}$ be a nice function -- real-analytic, or maybe definable in some o-minimal structure, let's say. Let $0 < \alpha_1 < \cdots < \alpha_n < 1$ be ...

Is the order arithmetic of the positive reals o-minimal?

Consider the structure of the positive real numbers $(0, \infty) $ with its unit $1$, its addition $+$, its multiplication $\times $, and its strict ordering $> $. Is this structure $$( (0, \infty)...

O-minimality and forcing

It is well-known that the structure $(\mathbb{R}, +, \cdot, <, 0, 1)$ is an o-minimal structure and hence the set of integers $\mathbb{Z}$ is not definable in it. In an ongoing project with Will ...

Definable functions in $o$-minimal structures

Consider the field of real numbers $(\mathbb R,+,\cdot)$. An expansion of $(\mathbb R,+,\cdot)$ is a tuple $(\mathbb R,+,\cdot,S)$, where $S$ is a collection of subsets of $\mathbb R^n$ for $n \in \...

Classification of $n$-dimensional Nash-submanifolds of $\mathbb{R}^n$

Let $M,N\subset \mathbb{R}^n$ be two open semi-algebraic subsets, and assume that $M$ and $N$ are $C^\infty$ diffeomorphic, i.e. isomorphic as smooth submanifolds of $\mathbb{R}^n$. Does this imply ...

Unboundedness of number of solutions of intersection of bivariate polynomial with graph of function from an o-minimal structure

I am trying to understand a construction sketched in the paper by Gwozdziewicz, Kurdyka and Parusinski in the Proceedings of the AMS 1999 (paper here) and I'd like to request some help. The ...

Sheafs in O-minimal Structures

Let $\mathcal{N} = (N, <, \ldots)$ be an o-minimal structure and let $X \subset N^m$ be a definable set. Following the procedure stablished by Edmundo, Jones and Peatfield in "Sheaf cohomology in o-...

Undefinability of $\mathbb{Z}$ in the reals

It is a well-known fact that $\mathbb{Z}$ is not definable in the structure $\mathcal{R}=(\mathbb{R}, +, ., < , 0, 1)$. This follows from Tarski's quantifier elimination, and in fact, we can ...

O-minimal spectrum is a spectral space

Limits of definable maps

For sequences of semialgebraic maps there is the following result: Let $(f_{n}: ]0,1[^d \to ]0,1[)_{n \in \mathbb{N}}$ be a sequence of continuous semialgebraic maps of bounded degree such that $(...

Are definable sets in an o-minimal expansion of the real field locally analytic?

I have a strong suspicion that yes, but as I am not a specialist in o-minimal structures, I thought that I might have overlooked some corner case. The precise statement is as follows: let $X \subset ...

What is the precise relationship between o-minimal theory and Grothendieck's “Esquisse d'un programme”?

I have seen various references in the literature to such a connection but they tend to assume that the reader is familiar with the connection, and limit themselves to providing additional detail. So ...

What classes of complex manifolds are known to be definable in an o-minimal expansion of the real field?

It is a widely known (perhaps slightly folkloric) fact that compact complex manifolds, understood as first-order structures with a predicate for each analytic subset, are definable in an expansion of ...

If $f$ is $C^{\infty}$ and $f^2$ is analytic, then $f$ is analytic

Assume that $f:\mathbb{C}^n\rightarrow \mathbb{C}$ is a $C^{\infty}$ function such that $f^2$ is (complex) analytic. Then one can show that $f$ is analytic. (Note: Liviu Nicolaescu and Alexandre ...

Representing quasianalytic functions in several variables

For functions in a quasianalytic Denjoy-Carleman class we have the property that their Taylor expansions at a point (the origin) determines the function. For classes that don't only contain analytic ...

Importance of Denjoy-Carleman classes as a class.

Denjoy-Carleman classes of differentiable functions, say in Roumieu's form: Given a log-convex sequence $M_n$ of positive number denote by $C_M=C_M(\mathbb{R}^n,0)$ the ring of germs of $C^\infty(\...

Is there any o-minimal expansion of the real field with functions of growth higher than exponential?

Let $\bar{\mathbb{R}}$ be the structure of the real field, that is $(\mathbb{R},0,1,+,-,*,<)$ . We say that a function $f$ is of growth higher than exponential if for all $N\in \mathbb{N}$ there $f(...

Why is definable compact equivalent to bounded and closed for sets with o-minimal structures?

We have $M$ an o-minimal structure. $X \in M^n$ with the induced topology. I'm reading an article which shows that $X \in M^n$ is definable compact is equivalent to $X$ being bounded and closed. ...
