Abstract
The problem of determining the volume of a tubular neighbourhood has a long and rich history. Bounds on the volume of neighbourhoods of algebraic sets have turned out to play an important role in the probabilistic analysis of condition numbers in numerical analysis. We present a selfcontained derivation of bounds on the probability that a random point, chosen uniformly from a ball, lies within a given distance of a real algebraic variety of any codimension. The bounds are given in terms of the degrees of the defining polynomials, and contain as special case an unpublished result by Ocneanu.
