Abstract

Suppose N is a Banach space of norm |•| and R is the set of real numbers. All integrals used are of the subdivision-refinement type. The main theorem Theorem 3 gives a representation of TH where H is a function from R×R to N such that Hp+,p+, Hp,p+, Hp−,p−, and Hp−,p each exist for each p and T is a bounded linear operator on the space of all such functions H. In particular we show that TH=I∫abfHdα+∑i=1∞Hxi−1,xi−1+−Hxi−1+,xi−1+βxi−1+∑i=1∞Hxi−,xi−Hxi−,xi−Θxi−1,xiwhere each of α, β, and Θ depend only on T, α is of bounded variation, β and Θ are 0 except at a countable number of points, fH is a function from R to N depending on H and {xi}i=1∞ denotes the points P in a,b. for which Hp,p+−Hp+,p+≠0 or Hp−,p−Hp−,p−≠0. We also define an interior interval function integral and give a relationship between it and the standard interval function integral.
