Measure (mathematics) | Other 'named' measures used in various theories include: Borel measure, Jordan measure, ergodic measure, Euler measure, Gaussian measure, Baire measure, Radon measure, Young measure, Loeb measure, and strong measure zero. |
Measure (mathematics) | A triple is called a . A probability measure is a measure with total measure one – i.e. . A probability space is a measure space with a probability measure. |
Measure algebra | In mathematics, a measure algebra is a Boolean algebra with a countably additive positive measure. A probability measure on a measure space gives a measure algebra on the Boolean algebra of measurable sets modulo null sets. |
Locally finite measure | In mathematics, a locally finite measure is a measure for which every point of the measure space has a neighbourhood of finite measure. |
Complexity measure | Complexity measure / measure of complexity may refer to any measure defined in various branches of complexity theory, specifically: |
Measure (mathematics) | A measure space is called finite if is a finite real number (rather than ∞). Nonzero finite measures are analogous to probability measures in the sense that any finite measure is proportional to the probability measure formula_14. A measure is called "σ-finite" if can be decomposed into a countable union of measurable sets of finite measure. Analogously, a set in a measure space is said to have a "σ-finite measure" if it is a countable union of sets with finite measure. |
Risk-neutral measure | In mathematical finance, a risk-neutral measure, (also called an equilibrium measure, or "equivalent martingale measure"), is a probability measure such that each share price is exactly equal to the discounted expectation of the share price under this measure. |
Discrete measure | In mathematics, more precisely in measure theory, a measure on the real line is called a discrete measure (in respect to the Lebesgue measure) if it is concentrated on an at most countable set. Note that the support need not be a discrete set. Geometrically, a discrete measure (on the real line, with respect to Lebesgue measure) is a collection of point masses. |
Convergence in measure | Convergence in measure can refer to either global convergence in measure or local convergence in measure, depending on the author. |
Pushforward measure | In measure theory, a discipline within mathematics, a pushforward measure (also push forward, push-forward or image measure) is obtained by transferring ("pushing forward") a measure from one measurable space to another using a measurable function. |
Complete measure | In mathematics, a complete measure (or, more precisely, a complete measure space) is a measure space in which every subset of every null set is measurable (having measure zero). More formally, ("X", Σ, "μ") is complete if and only if |
Trivial measure | In mathematics, specifically in measure theory, the trivial measure on any measurable space ("X", Σ) is the measure "μ" which assigns zero measure to every measurable set: "μ"("A") = 0 for all "A" in Σ. |
Banach measure | Banach showed that it is possible to define a Banach measure for the Euclidean plane, consistent with the usual Lebesgue measure. The existence of this measure proves the impossibility of a Banach–Tarski paradox in two dimensions: it is not possible to decompose a two-dimensional set of finite Lebesgue measure into finitely many sets that can be reassembled into a set with a different measure, because this would violate the properties of the Banach measure that extends the Lebesgue measure. |
Borel measure | In mathematics, specifically in measure theory, a Borel measure on a topological space is a measure that is defined on all open sets (and thus on all Borel sets). Some authors require additional restrictions on the measure, as described below. |
Strong measure zero set | Every countable set is a strong measure set, and so is every union of countably many strong measure zero sets. Every strong measure zero set has Lebesgue measure 0. The Cantor set is an example of an uncountable set of Lebesgue measure 0 which is not of strong measure zero. |
Complete measure | Maharam's theorem states that every complete measure space is decomposable into a measure on the continuum, and a finite or countable counting measure. |
Singular measure | A refined form of Lebesgue's decomposition theorem decomposes a singular measure into a singular continuous measure and a discrete measure. See below for examples. |
Haar measure | The "left" translate of a right Haar measure is a right Haar measure. More precisely, if ν is a right Haar measure, then |
Spherical measure | The relationship of spherical measure to Hausdorff measure on the sphere and Lebesgue measure on the ambient space has already been discussed. |
Oregon Ballot Measure 5 (1990) | Measure 5 was followed up with Measure 47 in 1996 and Measure 50 in 1997. Measure 47 limited the growth of a property's assessed value to 3% maximum per year to combat local governments' raising assessed values to make up the difference in the rate they could charge. Measure 50 clarified that measure. |
