Special logic seminar - Itaï BEN YAACOV, "Baby version of the asymptotic volume estimate"

I'll show how the Vandermonde determinant identity allows us to estimate the volume of certain spaces of polynomials in one variable (or rather, of homogeneous polynomials in two variables), as the degree goes to infinity. I'll explain what this is good for in the context of globally valued fields, and, given time constraints, may give some indications on the approach for the "real inequality" in higher projective dimension.
