## Definition

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

Let $f \in \MM_{\overline \R}, f: X \to \overline \R$ be a measurable function.

Then $f$ is said to be **$\mu$-integrable** if and only if:

- $\displaystyle \int f^+ \rd \mu < +\infty$

and

- $\displaystyle \int f^- \rd \mu < +\infty$

where $f^+$, $f^-$ are the positive and negative parts of $f$, respectively.

The integral signs denote $\mu$-integration of positive measurable functions.

## Also known as

When no ambiguity arises, one may also simply speak of **integrable functions**.

To emphasize $X$ or $\Sigma$, also **$X$-integrable function** and **$\Sigma$-integrable function** are encountered.

Any possible ambiguity may be suppressed by the phrasing **$\struct {X, \Sigma, \mu}$-integrable functions**, but this is usually too cumbersome.
