## MEASURE

### Measure

In mathematical analysis, a**measure**on a set is a systematic way to assign a number to each suitable subset of that set, intuitively interpreted as its size. In this sense, a measure is a generalization of the concepts of length, area, and volume. A particularly important example is the Lebesgue measure on a Euclidean space, which assigns the conventional length, area, and volume of Euclidean geometry to suitable subsets of the <math>n</math>-dimensional Euclidean space <math>\mathbb{R}^n</math>. For instance, the Lebesgue measure of the interval <math>\left1\right</math> in the real numbers is its length in the everyday sense ...
