This paper is a survey on Young measures. The main idea is that Young measures generalize functions and are particularly useful to study the limit behaviour of a sequence of oscillating functions. Under very mild assumptions any sequence of functions has a subsequence which converges to some Young measure.
The titles of the six sections are: First level theory: examples; Second level theory: the measurable locally compact case; General theory: the case of a metrizable Souslin space. Tightness; Application to sequences of measurable functions; Applications to uniformly integrable sequences in \(L^ 1\); Some properties of bounded sequences in \(L^ 1\). Connection with the biting lemma. An appendix contains some basic results of measure theory.
