Question on Functions of Bounded Variation

We say that $f$ is of bounded variation over $[a,b]$ or $f\in BV[a,b]$ if $V_f[a,b] = \sup \sum_{k=1}^n |f(x_k) - f(x_{k-1})| < \infty, $ where the supremum is taken over all possible partitions ...

Does the squared root $\sqrt{|\cdot|}$ belong to $BV((-1,1))$?

Does the squared root belong $\sqrt{|\cdot|}$ to $BV((-1,1))$? In an affirmative case, what is its derivative in the distributional sense, i.e., what is the Radon measure $\mu$ such that $\mu=Du$ ?

Integration of a $BV$ function with respect to a finite, signed Radon measure

Let $u,w\in BV(0,1)$ be given. Since we are in dimension 1 $u$ is continuous almost everywhere and has a representation $u^{l}$ and $u^{r}$ (left, right hand side continuous). Thus we can consider the ...
