Texxed. Introduced the notion of total variation measure to simplify notation and definitions. Corrected a mistake in the definition of total variation (the original one worked only for real-valued measures). Added the Riesz representation theorem and connection to Banach space theory. Precised some terminology. I have a real analysis background in measure theory: I kept the original terminology, but also added the one which is more common in real analysis. Some real analysts love to quarrel with probabilists about terminology and how measure theory should be taught: I am not one of them and open to a friendly debate with fellows probabilists :-).

Hi Camillo -- a couple of suggestions:

  • Should $\mu: \mathcal{B}\mapsto \mathbb R$ actually be $\mu: \mathcal{B}\rightarrow \mathbb R$?
  • Perhaps replace $\mathcal{B}$ by $\mathscr{B}$?
