The Vitali-Hahn-Saks theorems for k-triangular set functions. (English) Zbl 0626.28001
For an algebra \({\mathcal A}\) of sets and \(k\in (0,\infty)\), a set function \(\mu:{\mathcal A}\to {\mathbb{R}}_+\) is said to be k-triangular if \(| \mu (A\cup B)-\mu (A)| \leq k\mu (B)\) holds for each pair of disjoint sets \(A,B\in {\mathcal A}.\) The author proves variants of the Vitali-Hahn-Saks (or Brooks-Jewett) Theorem for exhaustive k-triangular set functions on an algebra having the subsequential interpolation property and for k- triangular set functions of regular variation on the Borel subsets of a Hausdorff locally compact topological space. The paper contains numerous references on the subject; two preprints quoted by the author are now published: P. de Lucia and P. Morales [Ric. Mat. 35, 75-87 (1986; Zbl 0612.28006)] and H. Weber [Rocky Mt. J. Math. 16, 253- 275 (1986; Zbl 0604.28006)].
