This chapter is devoted to the important notion of product measure. Besides the results related to the general case, we discuss the question of representing the Lebesgue measure in a multi-dimensional space as a product of measures and prove Cavalieri’s principle. We give several examples of application of the results obtained. In particular, we obtain a formula connecting the Euler and Γ functions and prove the Gagliardo–Nirenberg–Sobolev inequality.

In the last section, we introduce the notion of an infinite product of measures, which is important in probability theory.
