G-linear sets and torsion points in definably compact groups
E-mail: ,

Submission date: 3 August 2007


Let G be a definably compact group in an o-minimal expansion of a real closed field. We prove that if dim(G \ X ) < dim G for some definable subset X of G then X contains a torsion point of G. Along the way we develop a general theory for so-called G-linear sets, and investigate definable sets which contain abstract subgroups of G. 

Mathematics Subject Classification: 03C64
