951. Philipp Hieronymi, Travis Nell
Distal and Non-Distal Pairs

Submission date: 31 October 2015.


The aim of this note is to determine whether certain non-o-minimal expansions of o-minimal theories which are known to be NIP, are also distal. We observe that while tame pairs of o-minimal structures and the real field with a discrete multiplicative subgroup have distal theories, dense pairs of o-minimal structures and related examples do not.
