Stratifications and Poincaré series

In this last talk of the series, I will finish presenting the stratifications which describe definable sets in valued fields up to isometry, and I'll show how this indeed implies rationality of Poincaré series. If there's time, I'll also explain how the stratifications in valued fields yield Whitney stratifications in $\mathbb{C}^{n}$.
