*in a locally compact Hausdorff space $X$*

2010 Mathematics Subject Classification: *Primary:* 28A05 *Secondary:* 03E1554H05 [MSN][ZBL]

A set belonging to the $\sigma$-ring generated by the class of all compact sets in $X$ that are $G_\delta$-sets. A Baire set serves to define the concept of a Baire-measurable function. In all classical particular cases in which measure theory is developed in topological spaces, e.g. in Euclidean spaces, the concept of a Baire set coincides with that of a Borel set.
