A Big Difference Between Interpretability and Definability in an Expansion of the Real Field

Abstract
We say that E is R-sparse if f(Ek) has no interior, for each k 2 N and f : Rk ! R de nable in R. (Throughout, \de nable" means \de nable without parameters".) In this note, we consider the extent to which basic metric and topological properties of subsets of R de nable in (R;E)# are determined by the corresponding properties of subsets of R de nable in (R;E), when R is an o-minimal expansion of (R;<;+;0;1) and E is R-sparse. The precise statement of the main result is a bit complicated, but we can state some special cases now.
