Suppose tha t F i s of bounded variatio n o n T, and tha t F i s continuous a t th e points u n . The n N £ K ) = f F(a)dZ(N a). n = l ^ T On subtractin g N Jj F(a) da fro m bot h sides , we deduce tha t V F(u n ) -N f F(a) da= f F(a) dD(N a). n = l J t Jj Put A(N a) = D(N a) - \ supD(N /?) -\hdD(N l3). Thus supa A(7V a) = ±D{N) an d infa A(JV a) = -%D(N). Bu t A(AT a) differ s from D(N\a) b y a constant , s o the integra l o n the righ t abov e i s = [ F(a)dA{N-a).
