 In recent years, model theory has had remarkable success in solving important problems as well as in shedding new light on our understanding of them. The three lectures collected here present recent developments in three such areas: Anand Pillay on differential fields, Patrick Speissegger on ominimality and Matthias Clasen and Matthew Valeriote on tame congruence theory. Titles in this series are copublished with The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada). Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in mathematical logic and foundations.
