Abstract:
This thesis concerns the study of the density of rational and algebraic points in the transcendental part of sets that are definable in o-minimal structures. An o-minimal version of a reparametrisation result of Yosef Yomdin is proved, Yomdin's result being the prototype of a result used to prove the Pila-Wilkie theorem. Subsequently we concentrate on a specific o-minimal structure, the real exponential field, and prove some partial results towards a conjecture of Wilkie concerning the particular paucity of rational points in sets definable in this structure. 2.
