A group definable in an o-minimal structure which is not affine

Submission date: 8 April 2008


In this short note we provide an example of a group G definable in an o-minimal structure M which does not admit an affine embedding; in other words, there is no definable isomorphism between topological groups f: G --> K, such that the group topology on K coincides with the subspace topology.
