A noncompact smooth manifold X has a real algebraic structure if and only if X is tame at infinity, i.e. X is the interior of a compact manifold with boundary. Different algebraic structures on X can
be detected by the topology of an algebraic compactification
with normal crossings at infinity. The resulting filtration of the
homology of X is analogous to Deligne's weight filtration for
nonsingular complex algebraic varieties.
