Operations on constructible functions

Author: F. Loeser (ENS)

Abstract

Constructible functions appear under various guises in many different setting. Starting from real and o-minimal geometry, we shall journey to the p-adic and motivic setting. We plan to focus mainly on the construction of direct image (pushforward) but we intend also taking some time to discuss other operations, like the Fourier transformation.
