Submission: 2004, June 30.

*Abstract:
We prove that an analogue of the Hilbert's Thirteenth Problem fails in the real subanalytic setting.
Namely we show that, for any integer n, the o-minimal structure generated by restricted analytic functions
in n variables is strictly smaller than the structure of all global subanalytic sets, whereas these two structures
define the same subsets in R ^{n+1}.*

Keywords and Phrases: o-minimal structure, global subanalytic sets, formal series, representation of functions.
