We intend in this seminar to read Lou van den Dries’ Seminaire Bourbaki article entitled ”Approx- imate Groups [after Hrushovski, and Breuillard, Green, Tao]”. The subject involves the interaction of additive combinatorics and model theory. I will give an informal introduction, focusing on the statement of the main theorem.
