On the o-minimal Hilbert's fifth problem

Submission date: 13 July 2015.


Let M be an arbitrary o-minimal structure. Let G be a definably compact definably connected abelian definable group of dimension n. Here we compute the new the intrinsic o-minimal fundamental group of G; for each k>0, the k-torsion subgroups of G; the o-minimal cohomology algebra over Q of G. As a corollary we obtain a new uniform proof of Pillay's conjecture, an o-minimal analogue of Hilbert's fifth problem, relating definably compact groups to compact real Lie groups, extending the proof already known in o-minimal expansions of ordered fields.
