Capacities on non-Hausdorff spaces. (English) Zbl 0883.28002
Vervaat, W. (ed.) et al., Probability and lattices. Amsterdam: Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica (CWI). CWI Tracts. 110, 133-150 (1997).
Introducing capacities as increasing outer continuous functions \(c\) on the compact subsets of a topological space being not necessarily Hausdorff such that \(c(\emptyset)= 0\), the authors solve the problem for \(c\) to be the restriction of some Radon measure and to have an extension to a Choquet capacity in connection with a broad class of non-Hausdorff spaces. Furthermore, the domain of capacities is topologized such that capacities might be viewed as semicontinuous functions. In particular, conditions might be given under which capacities are continuous lattices.
