#### Research

This project investigates wild algebraic structures through two overlapping perspectives in model theory: a geometric approach and a positive logic approach. Model theory is a branch of mathematical logic that deals with definable sets (a generalisation of the notion of algebraic variety). It identifies deep notions of tameness which draw dividing lines among mathematical structures (e.g. groups, fields, graphs...). Tame structures (for instance stable structures) are the terrain of applications and connections between model theory and other areas (e.g. algebraic and diophantine geometry). This project intend to push the boundaries of tameness to structures previously considered wild but ripe for model-theoretic treatment.
