Extension of measure from algebra to sigma-algebra.


(Induced outer measure) Suppose $\QTR{cal}{A}$ is an algebra of sets and MATH has the properties

1. MATH ,

2. MATH for any disjoint collection of sets MATH , MATH , $\forall k$ .

We define the "outer measure induced by $\mu$ " as follows MATH


The $\mu^{\ast}$ introduced in the definition ( Induced outer measure ) is outer measure (see the definition ( Outer measure )).


(Extension of measure to sigma algebra) Under the conditions of the definition ( Induced outer measure ) let $\bar{\mu}$ be the restriction of the outer measure $\mu^{\ast}$ to the algebra $\QTR{cal}{F}$ of $\mu^{\ast}$ -measurable sets. Then

1. MATH is a measure space.

2. if $\mu$ is finite ( $\sigma$ -finite ) then so is $\bar{\mu}$ .

3. if $\mu$ is $\sigma$ -finite then $\bar{\mu}$ is the only extension of $\mu$ to the smallest $\sigma$ -algebra containing $\QTR{cal}{A}$ .

4. if $\mu$ is $\sigma$ -finite then MATH is complete and saturated.
