Measure and Integral: New foundations after one hundred years

  • Heinz KönigEmail author


The present article wants to describe the main ideas and developments in the theory of measure and integral in the course and at the end of the first century of its existence.


Traditional abstract measures and Radon measures construction of measures after Carathéodory and Daniell-Stone inner regularity, construction via inner premeasures finite and infinite products the inner representation theorem projective limits and stochastic processes
