Decomposable sets in the Lebesgue-Bochner spaces. (English) Zbl 0679.46032
Summary: Let X be a Banach space and \(K\subseteq L^ 1(X)\). We say that K is “decomposable” if for all measurable sets A and all \(f_ 1,f_ 2\in K\), \(\chi_ Af_ 1+\chi_{A^ c}f_ 2\in K\). In this paper we study the properties of such sets. So we obtain a new result about weak compactness in \(L^ 1(X)\), we study the image of decomposable sets under the action of continuous, linear operators and we derive some useful new properties of the set valued integral and of the set of integrable selectors of a measurable multifunction. Those results are then used to study convex integral functionals and to obtain a new “bang-bang” type theorem for infinite dimensional, linear control systems.
