An introduction to o-minimal structures [article]

2000 arXiv   pre-print
The first papers on o-minimal structures appeared in the mid 1980s, since then the subject has grown into a wide ranging generalisation of semialgebraic, subanalytic and subpfaffian geometry. In these notes we try to show that this is in fact the case by presenting several examples of o-minimal structures and by listing some geometric properties of sets and maps definable in o-minimal structures. We omit here any reference to the pure model theory of o-minimal structures and to the theory of groups and rings definable in o-minimal structures.
