### What's the difference between algebra and $\sigma$-algebra?

The title is quite misleading, I don't have a better one though. It's clear by definition that $\sigma$-algebra is also an algebra. Here is my question, for those algebras which are not $\sigma$-...

### Lebesgue measurable set that is not a Borel measurable set

exact duplicate of Lebesgue measurable but not Borel measurable BUT! can you please translate Miguel's answer and expand it with a formal proof? I'm totally stuck... In short: Is there a Lebesgue ...

### Is there a set $A \subset [0,1]$ such that both $A$ and $[0,1] \setminus A$ intersect every positive-measure set?

Is there a set $A \subset [0,1]$ such that for every Borel set $B \subset [0,1]$ of positive Lebesgue measure, both $B \cap A$ and $B \setminus A$ are non-empty? This is, in a sense, the "measure-...

### Positive outer measure set and nonmeasurable subset

I'm attending a course of Measure and Integration and have some homework to do. We don't have a specific book to follow, neither for exercise. I'm asked to proof that every set $A \in R$ with ...

### Existence of non-Borel subset

I got the following statement: For each set $N \subseteq \mathbb R^n$ with cardinality of the continuum $\#N=\mathfrak c$ there is a subset $M \subseteq N$ with $M \notin \mathcal B(\mathbb R^n)$. ...

### A question on Borel measurability

Let $X$ be a compact metric space. Given a map $x\mapsto E_x$ where $E_x\subset X$ is a Borel set in X. What can be said about the Borel measurability of the set $F_E:=\{(x,y)\in X\times X:y\in E_x\}$?...

### Do non-measurable sets exist for $\{0,1\}^{\mathbb N}$?

It is well known that a non-Lebesgue measurable, and hence non Borel measurable subset of $[0,1]$ exists. However, if I consider the set $\Omega=\{0,1\}^{\mathbb N}$ in the infinite independent coin ...

### How to prove that cardinality Borel $\sigma$-algebra equals the cardinality of $\mathbb R$? [duplicate]

My understanding at this point is that to assign a probability measure to a random variable defined on the real line, we need a Borel $\mathscr{B}$ sigma algebra, because otherwise we wouldn't be able ...

### Borel sigma algebra - why smallest?

I was wondering why Borel algebra $B(X)$ is defined to be the smallest sigma algebra containing all open subsets of X. If it contains all the subsets, then how can any other sigma algebra have more ...

### Cardinality Of Borel Sets

I was trying to show that Borel $\sigma$ algebra is smaller than lebesgue measurable sets. I could come up with a proof for the cardinality of lebesgue measurable sets being $2^c$. Cardinality of ...

### About the cardinality of the Borelians in the real line. [duplicate]

Is true that the set of the Borelians in $\mathbb{R}$ has the same cardinality of $\mathbb{R}$? I need of the Continuum Hypothesis for to prove this?
### Not all sets in $\mathbb{R}$ are Lebesgue measurable sets [duplicate]
Let $\mathcal{B}(\mathbb{R})$ be the Borel-sigma algebra on $\mathbb{R}$, and let $\mathcal{L}$ be the Lebesgue sigma-algebra which is a unique extension of $\mathcal{B}(\mathbb{R})$ with respect to ...
