In this setup, the composition of measurable functions is measurable, making the measurable spaces and measurable functions a category , with the measurable spaces as objects and the set of measurable functions as arrows. See also Measurable function Term usage variations about another setup.

Measure Theory 1.1 : Definition and Introduction

A probability space is a measure space with a probability measure. For measure spaces that are also topological spaces various compatibility conditions can be placed for the measure and the topology.

Most measures met in practice in analysis and in many cases also in probability theory are Radon measures. Radon measures have an alternative definition in terms of linear functionals on the locally convex space of continuous functions with compact support. This approach is taken by Bourbaki and a number of other sources.

For more details, see the article on Radon measures. Other 'named' measures used in various theories include: Borel measure , Jordan measure , ergodic measure , Euler measure , Gaussian measure , Baire measure , Radon measure , Young measure , and Loeb measure. In physics an example of a measure is spatial distribution of mass see e.

Negative values lead to signed measures, see "generalizations" below. For any countable sequence E 1 , E 2 , E 3 , This property is false without the assumption that at least one of the E n has finite measure. Alternatively, consider the real numbers with the counting measure , which assigns to each finite set of reals the number of points in the set. They can be also thought of as a vague generalization of the idea that a measure space may have 'uncountable measure'.

A measure is said to be s-finite if it is a countable sum of bounded measures.

S-finite measures are more general than sigma-finite ones and have applications in the theory of stochastic processes. A subset of a null set is called a negligible set. A negligible set need not be measurable, but every measurable negligible set is automatically a null set. A measure is called complete if every negligible set is measurable. Measures are required to be countably additive. However, the condition can be strengthened as follows. If the axiom of choice is assumed to be true, it can be proved that not all subsets of Euclidean space are Lebesgue measurable ; examples of such sets include the Vitali set , and the non-measurable sets postulated by the Hausdorff paradox and the Banachâ€”Tarski paradox.

For certain purposes, it is useful to have a "measure" whose values are not restricted to the non-negative reals or infinity. For instance, a countably additive set function with values in the signed real numbers is called a signed measure , while such a function with values in the complex numbers is called a complex measure. Measures that take values in Banach spaces have been studied extensively.
