\(\omega \)-primitives on \(\sigma \)-discrete metric spaces. (English) Zbl 1025.26003
Summary: This paper continues the investigation started in [Z. Duszyński, Z. Grande and S. P. Ponomarev, “On the \(\omega \)-primitive”, Math. Slovaca 51, 469-476 (2001; Zbl 0987.54031)], [J. Ewert and S. P. Ponomarev, “Oscillation and \(\omega \)-primitives”, Real Anal. Exch. 26, 687-702 (2001; Zbl 1025.26002), preceding review], [P. Kostyrko, “Some properties of oscillation”, Math. Slovaca 30, 157-162 (1980; Zbl 0441.54004)], in the case of \(\sigma \)-discrete metric spaces. It is shown that given an upper semicontinuous function \(f\:X\to [0,\infty ]\), where \(X\) is a \(\sigma \)-discrete dense in itself metric space, there exists a function \(F\:X\to \mathbb R\) (called an \(\omega \)-primitive for \(f\)) whose oscillation equals \(f\).
