We introduce a method for estimating the size of the domain of definition of the solutions of a meromorphic vector field on a neighborhood of its pole divisor. The technique relies, in a certain sense, on obtaining a quantitative variant of some well-known results concerning the distance function between complex submanifolds in the presence of metrics with positive curvature. Several applications of these ideas are provided including a type of "confinement theorem" for the solutions of the

As a complement, a new approach to certain classical equations is proposed and detailed in the case of Halphen equations. (2010) : 37F75, 34M05, 34M55. Mathematics Subject Classification
