## Lectures on Choquet's TheoremAppearing for the first time in book form are the main results centered about Choquet's integral representation theorem-an important recent chapter in functional analysis. This theorem has applications to analysis, probability, potential theory, and functional analysis; it will doubtless have further applications as it becomes better known. This readable book presupposes a knowledge of integration theory and elementary functional analysis, including the Krein-Milman theorem and the Riesz representation theorem. --Back cover. |
