IMT Exercise 1.1.3

(Uniqueness of elementary measure). Let . Let be a map from the collection of elementary subsets of to the non-negative reals that obeys the non-negativity, finite additivity and translation invariance properties. Show that there exists a constant such that for … Continue reading

IMT Exercise 1.1.2

Give an alternate proof of Lemma 1.1.2(ii) by showing that any two partitions of into boxes admit a mutual refinement into boxes that arise from taking Cartesian products from elements from finite collections of disjoint intervals. Lemma 1.1.2(ii) If is … Continue reading
