Title: Purely set theoretic foundation for measure theory with an application to hierarchical inference

Abstract

A simple set of axioms is given for a class of subsets of an abstract set, Z, called ''intervals'', and an assigned ''measure'' for intervals, from which the basic theorems of measure theory are derived. Such a nontopological formulation is required in introducing a measure in a set of graphs, and was developed earlier for that purpose in a more complicated way. The theory is shown to apply to the set of all state vectors of an infinite hierarchical inference tree. 1 figure.
