Hi. Under what conditions does the following equality hold?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]f(x)=\lim\limits_{\Omega\rightarrow\{x\}} \frac{1}{\mu(\Omega)}\int_\Omega f d\mu[/itex]

where [itex]\mu[/itex] is some measure. Being a little more careful, let [itex]\Omega_i[/itex] be a sequence of sets such that [itex]\Omega_{i+1}\subseteq\Omega_i[/itex] and

[itex]\bigcap\limits_{i=1}^{\infty} \Omega_i=\{x\}[/itex].

Then, define the consider the sequence [itex]\{y_i\}_{i=1}^\infty[/itex] where

[itex]y_i=\frac{1}{\mu(\Omega_i)}\int_{\Omega_i} f d\mu[/itex]

Under what conditions does [itex]\lim\limits_{i\rightarrow\infty} y_i=f(x)[/itex]?
