I should not have used the phrase "semi-algebraic functions" here;  
that would be the correct description only in the real case. I guess  
in the complex case they should be referred to as "elements of some  
algebraic extension of the the field of rational functions" - maybe  
calling them "algebraic functions" is O.K.
