Suppose that, for each point x in a given subset E ⊂ Rn, we are given an m-jet f(x) and a convex, symmetric set σ(x) of m-jets at x. We ask whether there exist a function F ∈ Cm,w(Rn) and a finite constant M, such that the m-jet of F at x belongs to f(x) + Mσ(x) for all x ∈ E. We give a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of such F, M, provided each σ(x) satisfies a condition that we call "Whitnet w-convexity".

We prove that the expansion of the real field by a restricted C${}^{\infty}$-function is generically o-minimal. Such a result was announced by A. Grigoriev, and proved in a different way. Here, we deduce quasi-analyticity from a transcendence condition on Taylor expansions. This then implies o-minimality. The transcendance condition is shown to be generic. As a corollary, we recover in a simple way that there exist o-minimal structures that doesn’t admit analytic cell decomposition, and that there exist incompatible...

We shall prove the following Theorem. Let Fs and Fu be two continuous transverse foliations with uniformly smooth leaves, of some manifold. If f is uniformly smooth along the leaves of Fs and Fu, then f is smooth.
