This report is motivated by a study of Rogers and Taylor characteriz-
ing those interval functions which are absolutely continuous with respect to
the s-dimensional Hausdorff measure. This problem leads naturally to an
investigation of Lipschitz numbers
D(f,x)= limsup — —
y,z-^x,yxz \Z —
and to s-dimensional integrals roughly of the form
= lim£/(£)(*.• - *i-i)*-
The exposition is presented in the setting of interval functions on the real
line and the differentiation, measure-theoretic and variational properties are
developed. Applications are given to the Hausdorff and packing measures as
well as to the classical differentiation theory of real functions.
