# Definition:Almost Everywhere

## Definition

Let $\struct {X, \Sigma, \mu}$ be a measure space.

A property $\map P x$ of elements of $X$ is said to hold ($\mu$-)almost everywhere if the set:

$\set {x \in X: \neg \map P x}$

of elements of $X$ such that $P$ does not hold is contained in a $\mu$-null set.

## Also known as

Alternatively, one may say:

Almost every element of $X$ has property $P$

or:

Almost all elements of $X$ have property $P$.
