Local interdefinability and Ax-Schanuel

Jonathan Kirby (University of East Anglia)

Abstract:  We consider which holomorphic functions are locally definable from other holomorphic functions in the context of o-minimality. In the case of exponentiation and Weierstrass elliptic functions we are able to use Ax-Schanuel-type results to answer the question completely.
