Tame Geometry And Applications

Abstract: Originating in Grothendieck's "Esquisse d'un programme", tame geometry has been developed by model theorists under the name "o-minimal structures". It studies structures where every definable set has a finite geometric complexity. It has for prototype real semi-algebraic geometry, but is much richer. After recalling the main features of tame geometry, I will focus on the tame geometry of locally homogeneous spaces, explain some applications in Hodge theory and draw a parallel with Ratner theory.
