Expansions ‚Äčof real closed fields with the Banach Fixed Point Property

Submission date: 26 April 2020


An expansion of a real closed ordered field is said to have the Banach Fixed Point Property when for every locally closed definable set E, if every definable contraction on E has a fixed point, then E is closed. We prove that an expansion of a real closed ordered field has o-minimal open core if and only if it is definably complete and has the Banach Fixed Point Property. As consequences, we obtain that the possession of o-minimal open cores is a first-order property in languages extending the language of the ordered rings and is preserved under elementary equivalence.
