The measure nig is positive if and only if g is increasing. Then to the variation function \g\ we associate the positive measure m\g\. As in the previous case, the measure m\gi is G-additive, nig is a-additive, with finite variation \mg\ = ni\g\. We can extend m\g\ to a a-additive /x :7^(/) -^ [0, H-oo] and then we can extend nig to a a-additive measure m : V{I) -> R with finite variation |m| = /x. If ^ has bounded variation on /, then nig can be extended to a a-additive measure m : B{I) ^- R on the Borel a-algebra, with bounded variation \m\— fi.
