Arithmetic and Geometry, Bonn, April 2013

April 18, 2013

Today on the conference Florian Pop gave a wonderful, very inspirational and very enlightening talk on Rumely’s arithmetical capacity theory. I feel a strong desire to abandon all my current projects and start reading Rumely’s books. Last time I had such feeling when I learned the notion of o-minimality and read the book of van den Dries.

By the way, as Martin Widmer remarked during his recent talk in Bordeaux, o-minimality is a very clever way of formalizing the notion of “being non-pathological”.
