Abstract: [en] In 2010, Guth and Katz introduced the polynomial partitioning theorem as a tool in incidence geometry and in additive combinatorics. This allowed the application of results from algebraic geometry (mainly on intersection theory and on the topology of real algebraic varieties) to the solution of long standing problems, including the celebrated Erdős distinct distances problem. Recently, Walsh has extended the polynomial partitioning method to an arbitrary subvariety. This result opens the way to the application of this method to control the point-hypersurface incidences and, more generally, of variety-variety incidences, in spaces of arbitrary dimension. This final project consists in studying Walsh’s paper, to explain its contents and explore its applications to t his kind of incidence problems.
