*Abstract:
A weakly o-minimal structure $\mathcal{M}=(M,\leq,+,\ldots)$ expanding
an ordered group $(M,\leq,+)$ is called non-valuational iff
for every cut $\langle C,D\rangle$ of $(M,\leq)$ definable in
$\mathcal{M}$, we have that $\inf\{y-x:x\in C,y\in D\}=0$. The
study of non-valuational weakly o-minimal expansions of real closed
fields carried out in \cite{MMS} suggests that this class is very close
to the class of o-minimal expansions of real closed fields.
Here we further develop this analogy. We establish an o-minimal style
cell decomposition for weakly o-minimal non-valuational expansions
of ordered groups. For structures enjoying such a strong cell decomposition
we construct a canonical o-minimal extension.
Finally, we make attempts towards generalizing
the o-minimal Euler chararacteristic to the class of sets
definable in weakly o-minimal structures with strong cell decomposition.*
