7.4. Lebesgue Integral

Definition 7.4.5: Lebesgue Integral for Bounded Functions

Suppose f is a bounded function defined on a measurable set E with finite measure. Define the upper and lower Lebesgue integrals, respectively, as
I*(f)L = inf{ s(x) dx: s is simple and s f }
I*(f)L = sup{ s(x) dx: s is simple and s f }
If I*(f)L = I*(f)L the function f is called Lebesgue integrable over E and the Lebesgue integral of f over E is denoted by
E f(x) dx
