## Lemma for Riesz-Markov-Kakutani Representation Theorem

Let $\struct {X, \tau}$ be a locally compact Hausdorff space.

Let $\map {C_c} X$ be the space of continuous complex functions with compact support on $X$.

Let $\Lambda$ be a positive linear functional on $\map {C_c} X$.

There exists a $\sigma$-algebra $\MM$ over $X$ which contains the Borel $\sigma$-algebra of $\struct {X, \tau}$.

There exists a unique complete Radon measure $\mu$ on $\MM$ such that:

- $\ds \forall f \in \map {C_c} X: \Lambda f = \int_X f \rd \mu$

### Notation

For an open set $V \in \tau$ and a mapping $f \in \map {C_c} X$:

- $f \prec V \iff \supp f \subset V$

where $\supp f$ denotes the support of $f$.

For a compact set $K \subset X$ and a mapping $f \in \map {C_c} X$:

- $K \prec f \iff \forall x \in K: \map f x = 1$

### Construction of $\mu$ and $\MM$

For every $V \in \tau$, define:

- $\map {\mu_1} V = \sup \set {\Lambda f: f \prec V}$

For every other subset $E \subset X$, define:

- $\map \mu E = \inf \set {\map {\mu_1} V: V \supset E \land V \in \tau}$

By monotonicity of $\mu_1$:

- $\mu_1 = \mu {\restriction_\tau}$

Define:

- $\MM_F = \set {E \subset X : \map \mu E < \infty \land \map \mu E = \sup \set {\map \mu K: K \subset E \land K \text { compact} } }$

Define:

- $\MM = \set {E \subset X : \forall K \subset X \text { compact}: E \cap K \in \MM_F}$

## Lemma

$\mu$ is countably additive over pairwise disjoint collections of subsets of $\MM_F$.

## Proof

Let $\sequence {E_i} \in \paren {\MM_F}^\N$ be pairwise disjoint with union $E$.

Let $\map \mu E = \infty$.

Then, by countable subadditivity:

- $\ds \infty = \map \mu E \le \sum_{i \mathop = 1}^\infty \map \mu {E_i}$

This article, or a section of it, needs explaining.In particular: Link to evidence that $\map \mu {E_i}$ is subadditiveYou can help $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ by explaining it.To discuss this page in more detail, feel free to use the talk page.When this work has been completed, you may remove this instance of `{{Explain}}` from the code. |

So:

- $\ds \map \mu E = \sum_{i \mathop = 1}^\infty \map \mu E$

Suppose $\map \mu E < \infty$.

By definition of $\MM_F$, for all $\epsilon \in \R_{>0}$, for each $i$, there exists a compact $H_i \subset E_i$ such that:

- $\map \mu {H_i} > \map \mu {E_i} - 2^{-i} \epsilon$

So:

\(\ds \map \mu E\) | \(\ge\) | \(\ds \map \mu {\bigcup_{i \mathop = 1}^\infty H_i}\) | ||||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(=\) | \(\ds \sum_{i \mathop = 1}^\infty \map \mu {H_i}\) | Lemma 3 | |||||||||||

\(\ds \) | \(>\) | \(\ds -\epsilon + \sum_{i \mathop = 1}^\infty \map \mu {E_i}\) |

This holds for all $n \in \N$.

So $\mu$ is countably superadditive over pairwise disjoint collections of subsets of $\MM_F$.

Therefore, by Lemma 1, $\mu$ is countably additive over pairwise disjoint collections of subsets of $\MM_F$.
