Abstract

For a local system\small{\mathcal S} and a function f:R → R, Thomson defines (see B. S. Thomson, Real functions, Lect. Notes in Math., 1170, Springer-Verlag, 1985) the metric outer measure\small{\mathcal S}\text{-}\small\mu _f on R. 

We introduced in Real Functions - Current Topics the properties\small{\mathcal S}AC ~({\mathcal S}-absolute continuity) and \small{\mathcal S}ACG.

In this paper we show that for some particular local systems, such as \small {\mathcal S}_o, ~{\mathcal S}_{ap}~ \text{and}~ {\mathcal S}_{\alpha ,\beta }\:, there is a strong relationship between \small{\mathcal S}\text{-}\mu _f~ \text{and} ~{\mathcal S}ACG.

For example (see Theorem 8.4):

A function f:[a,b] → R is\small{\mathcal S}_oACG on a Lebesgue measurable set E \subset [a,b]        

\small{\mathcal S}_o\text{-}\mu_f is absolutely continuous on E

⇒ f is VB*G ∩ (N) on E and f is continuous at each point of E

 

In Theorem 5.1, we show that:

A function f:[a,b]→ R, Lebesgue measurable on E ⊆ [a,b], is\small {\mathcal S}_{ap}ACG on E if and only if\small {\mathcal S}_{ap}\text{-}\mu _f is absolutely continuous on E.

 

This result remains true if\small{\mathcal S}_{ap} is replaced by\small{\mathcal S}_{\alpha ,\beta } with\small\alpha ,\beta \in \bigl(1/2\,,\,1\bigr]  (see Theorem 5.1).

We also give several characterizations of the VB*G functions on an arbitrary set, that are continuous at each point of that set (see Theorem 7.4).
