Extending Partial Orders on o-Minimal Structures to Definable Total Orders

Abstract

In this note we answer a question raised by John Truss. He asked if every definable partial ordering in an o-minimal structure can be extended to a definable total order. His question is motivated by analogy with the Order Extension Principle, a weak choice-like axiom of interest to set theorists, which asserts that every partial ordering of a set can be… (More)
