Peano derivatives and general integrals

Peter Southcott Bullen and S. N. Mukhopadhyay

Vol. 47 (1973), No. 1, 43–58

It is known that if a function f has a finite derivative (or approximate derivative) on a set E on which f is continuous then f is ACG (or ACG) on E and that if f is ACG (or ACG) on a set E then a finite derivative (or approximate derivative) of f exists almost everywhere in E. These results are extended by Sargent in the case of generalized derivatives of higher order. She has proved that if fn+1, the generalized derivative of f of order n + 1, exists in an interval [a,b] then the derivative fn is V n ACG on [a,b] and that if fn is V n ACG on [a,b] then fn+1 exists and is equal to the approximate derivative of fn almost everywhere in [a,b].

The present work is concerned with extending still further these results of Sargent by introducing a more general definitions of absolute continuity for the n-th derivatives. It also introduces an approximate Pn-integral which generalizes the Pn-integral of James and Bullen.
