Main Question or Discussion Point

under what condition the does the equality hold ?

[tex] \int_{0}^{\infty} dt \frac{ f(at)-f(bt)}{g(t)}= (G(b)-G(a))(f(0)-f(\infty)) [/tex]

and [tex] \int dt g(t) [/tex]

Did you mean to say
[tex]G(t)= \int dt g(t) [/tex]
in your last line?

yes i meant the integral of g(t) ,i have been looking for generalizations of this integral but without any luck , under that condition can define g(t) and f(at) f(bt) so the integral above converge ?? thank

The generalized mean value theorem says that if f and g are differentiable on (a, b) and continuous on [a, b], then there exist c in (a, b) such that
[tex]\frac{f(b)- f(a)}{g(b)- g(a)}= \frac{f'(c)}{g'(c)}[/tex]

That looks like an integral version to me.
