|Résume||Given a system of polynomial equations in m complex variables with solution set of dimension d, if we take finite subsets X_i of C each of size at most N, then the number of solutions to the system whose ith co-ordinate is in X_i is easily seen to be bounded as O(N^d). We ask: when can we improve on the exponent d in this bound?
Hrushovski developed a formalism in which such questions become amenable to the tools of model theory, and in particular observed that incidence bounds of Szemeredi-Trotter type imply modularity of associated geometries. Exploiting this, we answer a (more general form of) our question above. This is part of a joint project with Emmanuel Breuillard.
