Why not "Increasing"? Yes, it's monotone, but stating that it is increasing is stronger. --prime mover (talk) 22:06, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

I guess it is because Schilling speaks of "Monotonicity". But that shouldn't bother us. You're right, "Increasing" is better. — Lord_Farin (talk) 22:12, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
Reading between the lines, does this mean that some authors (e.g. Schilling) use "monotone" to mean what we have described here as "increasing"? Our definition has "monotone" to encompass "decreasing" as well - I don't know measure theory well, but an instant's thought suggests that the concept of a "decreasing" function in measure theory may not be meaningful or useful.
In that case, is it worth adding an "also known as" in "Increasing" to indicate that "Monotone" sometimes used to mean the same thing? --prime mover (talk) 05:33, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes, another accurate observation. — Lord_Farin (talk) 06:33, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
Rename done as suggested. --prime mover (talk) 22:29, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
