Why are gauge integrals not more popular?

A recent answer reminded me of the gauge integral, which you can read about here. It seems like the gauge integral is more general than the Lebesgue integral, e.g. if a function is Lebesgue ...

Integrability: Neither improper Riemann nor Lebesgue but Henstock-Kurzweil

Can you think of a function that is neither improper Riemann nor Lebesgue integrable, but is Henstock-Kurzweil integrable? I'd like to put a bounty on this question, but my reputation is not nearly ...

A very useful lemma for Henstock-Stieltjes integration

I'd like to see a proof (or hints and outlines) for the following lemma, which is very useful to prove some interesting properties, including an Integration by Parts theorem for Henstock-Stieltjes ...

Mistake in Bartle's proof of Hake's Theorem?

Here is Bartle's proof of Hake's Theorem found in "A Modern Theory of Integration". I think there is a mistake in the highlighted line: The Theorem: $f:[a,b]\to \mathbb{R}$ is gauge integrable if and ...

Equivalence of the Lebesgue integral and the Henstock–Kurzweil integral on nonnegative real functions

Let $f:[a,b]\to[0,\infty)$ ($\mathbb{R}\ni a<b\in\mathbb{R}$), and fix $c\geq0$. I want to establish the equivalence of the concepts of Lebesgue integrability and Henstock–Kurzweil integrability ...

What are the necessary and sufficient conditions for a function to be Henstock–Kurzweil integrable?

I recently stumbled upon Lebesgue’s criterion for Riemann integrability. It didn't take very long until I found this result quite intuitive. I then began studying the Henstock–Kurzweil integral. Very ...

Can conditionally convergent series be interpreted as a “generalized Henstock-Kurzweil integral”?

One amazing thing about the Lebesgue integral is that is defined w.r.t. to a given measure and that there a lot of different measures making the Lebesgue integration a very general tool (consider ...

Example of a function f that is Generalized Riemann Integrable, but its square is NOT Generalized Riemann Integrable.

I am reading a section about Generalized Riemann Integral (Kurzweil-Henstock), and there was a problem on that section to provide an example of a function $f$ on $[0,1]$ that is Generalized Riemann ...

Generalized Riemann Integral

Is there any usage of studying the Henstock-Kurzweil integral as such ? It doesn't seem to be as popular a method of integration as the Lebesgue integral or even the Riemann-Stieltjes Integral,...

Looking for an accessible explanation of Henstock–Kurzweil (gauge) integral

I'm not completely new to analysis, but I'm an engineer -- very applied, not very theoretical -- looking into self-studying pure mathematics. I've recently stumbled upon Henstock–Kurzweil integrals; ...

I am looking for an example of a function that is not Henstock-Kurzweil integrable. Can anybody help me?

What if we replace step functions by a different class of functions in the definition of Riemann integral?

Suppose we are working with some sets $\mathcal S_{1,2}$ of functions $[a,b]\to\mathbb R$. (Probably most often we would take $\mathcal S_1=\mathcal S_2=\mathcal S$.) Let us assume that we have some ...

Gauge Integral: Non-Borel Spaces

Is there a gauge integral over non Borel spaces? (My interest lies in finite measure spaces.) It seems as the definition of the gauge integral crucially depends on the existence of open sets for a ...

Henstock-Kurzweil integral of $f(x)=n$ for $x=1/n$ (and zero otherwise)

I need to prove that the function $$f(x) = \begin{cases} n & x=1/n \\ 0 & \text{ otherwise} \\ \end{cases}$$ defined on $[0,1]$ is Henstock-Kurzweil integrable. I've tried to ...

generalized Riemann Integrability of $f\cdot g$

Let $\mathcal{R}([a.b])$ the set of all Riemann-integrable functions in $[a,b]$. Let $\mathcal{R}^{*}([a,b])$ the set of all Generalized Riemann-Integrable functions in $[a,b]$ (I'm talking about the ...

Is there a treatment/development of the Stokes' Theorem using differential forms and the Henstock-Kurzweil integral i.e. the gauge integral?

I'm working through an analysis text independently to prepare for grad school, and the author has discussed the limitations of both the Riemann and Lebesgue integrals and only hinted at the power of ...

Is the derivative of $x \cos\left(\frac{\pi}{x}\right)$ integrable?

Let $F:[0,1]\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ defined by $$F(x)= \left\{ \begin{array} .x\cdot \cos\left(\frac{\pi}{x}\right), &\textrm{if } x\in[0,1] \\ 0, &\textrm{ if x=0} \end{array} \right.$$ ...

Questions regarding Gauge and Darboux Integrals?

Can the Gauge Integral exist on a function defined on a countable set? What would it equal? I was wondering because if we took the Darboux Integral of $f:C\cap[a,b]\to\mathbb{R}$ where $C$ is a ...
I am trying to show that the Henstock-Kurzweil integral of sin(x)/x from zero to infinity is $\pi/2$. In order to do this, I wish to construct an explicit gauge and use Cousin's lemma to find a Perron ...
