*Abstract:
Let \M\ be an o--minimal expansion of a real closed field. Let $G$ be a definably
compact definably connected abelian $n$--dimensional group definable in \M. We show
the following: the o--minimal fundamental group of $G$ is isomorphic to $\Z^n$; for
each $k>0$, the $k$--torsion subgroup of $G$ is isomorphic to $(\Z/k\Z)^{n}$, and
the o--minimal cohomology algebra over \Q\ of $G$ is isomorphic to the exterior
algebra over \Q\ with $n$ generators of degree one.*
