# Vector Measures

*J. Diestel; J. J. Uhl, Jr.*

In this survey the authors endeavor to give a comprehensive
examination of the theory of measures having values in Banach spaces. The
interplay between topological and geometric properties of Banach spaces and the
properties of measures having values in Banach spaces is the unifying
theme.

The first chapter deals with countably additive vector measures finitely
additive vector measures, the Orlicz-Pettis theorem and its relatives.
Chapter II concentrates on measurable vector valued functions and the
Bôchner integral.

Chapter III begins the study of the interplay among the Radon-Nikodým
theorem for vector measures, operators on \(L_1\) and topological
properties of Banach spaces. A variety of applications is given in the next
chapter.

Chapter V deals with martingales of Bôchner integrable functions and
their relation to dentable subsets of Banach spaces. Chapter VI is devoted to a
measure-theoretic study of weakly compact absolutely summing and nuclear
operators on spaces of continuous functions.

In Chapter VII a detailed study of the geometry of Banach spaces with the
Radon-Nikodým property is given. The next chapter deals with the use of
Radon-Nikodým theorems in the study of tensor products of Banach spaces.
The last chapter concludes the survey with a discussion of the Liapounoff
convexity theorem and other geometric properties of the range of a vector
measure.

Accompanying each chapter is an extensive survey of the literature and open
problems.
