Submission date: 20 May 2009.


Let G be the cyclic group of order k and N=(R, + , • , < , ... ) an o-minimal expansion of a real closed field R. Let X be a definably connected definable set with a free definable G-action. Assume that there exists a positive integer n such that H_q(X; Z/kZ) q for 1 \leq q \leq n. If Y is a definable set with a free definable G-action such that H_{n+1}(Y/G, Z/kZ)=0, then there is no definable G-map from X to Y. We also prove the topological version of this definable version.
