"Transcendence of period mappings "

In the '60s Schanuel proposed a simple conjecture that generalizes most known results of transcendental number theory. While Schanuel's conjecture is still wide open, some geometric (i.e. function field) variants of the conjecture have been proved. I will describe these results and state a very general version of the "Ax-Schanuel" theorem recently proved by Bakker and Tsimerman.
