A set of axioms is presented defining an 'analytic Zariski structure', as a generalisation of Hrushovski and Zilber's Zariski structures. Some consequences of the axioms are explored. A simple example of a structure constructed using Hrushovski's method of free amalgamation is shown to be a non-trivial example of an analytic Zariski structure. A number of 'quasi-analytic' results are derived for this example e.g. analogues of Chow's theorem and the proper mapping theorem. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
