The notion of an o-minimal expansion of the ordered field of real numbers was invented by L van den Dries [vdD1] as a framework for investigating the model theory of the real exponential function exp : R -> R : x -> exp(x), and thereby settle an old problem of Tarski. More on this later, but for the moment it is best motivated as being a candidate for Grothendieck’s idea of “tame topology” as expounded in his Esquisse d’un Programme [Gr]. In this lecture I shall explain these remarks.
