A subset $ A $ of a domain $ D \subset \mathbf C ^ {k} $ such that, for each point $ z \in D $, there exists an open polydisc $ \Delta ( z, r) \subset D $ and a function $ f $ which is holomorphic, not identically equal to zero, but which vanishes on $ A \cap \Delta ( z, r) $.


Usually, being thin means being a subset of an analytic set. Cf. also Thinness of a set.
