Masser recently proved a bound on the number of rational points of bounded height on the graph of the zeta function restricted to the interval [2,3]. Masser's bound substantially improves on bounds obtained by Bombieri-Pila-Wilkie. I'll discuss some results obtained in joint work with Gareth Boxall in which we prove bounds only slightly weaker than Masser's for several more natural analytic functions.
