On extension of Baire submeasures. (English) Zbl 0606.28010
Let T be a locally compact topological space. It is well known that each Baire measure on it can be extended uniquely to a regular Borel measure. In a previous paper of the author [Diss. Math. 112, 35 p. (1974; Zbl 0292.28001)] this result was generalized to submeasures. In the present paper a new proof is presented. It is based on the following observation. If \(\mu\) is a regular Borel (sub)measure, then to each Borel set A there is a Baire set E such that \(A\Delta E\) is a \(\mu\)-null set. Thus to extend a Baire submeasure it suffices to define appropriate \(\sigma\)- ideal of ”null”sets. This method is known at least since P. A. Meyer’s ”Probabilités et potentiel” (1966; Zbl 0138.104)]. The definition of submeasure used here does not contain subadditivity, but by the work of L. Drewnowski [Colloq. Math. 38, 243-253 (1978; Zbl 0398.28003)] this is in fact inessential. The proofs are in the same vein as in P. R. Halmos’ ”Measure theory” (1950; Zbl 0040.168)].
