Abstract: Two subanalytic subsets of are -equivalent at a common point, say , if the Hausdorff distance between their intersections with the sphere centered at of radius goes to zero faster than . In the present paper we investigate the existence of an algebraic representative in every -equivalence class of subanalytic sets. First we prove that such a result holds for the zero-set of an analytic map when the regular points of are dense in . Moreover we present some results concerning the algebraic approximation of the image of a real analytic map under the hypothesis that .
