Topologies and measures on the space of functions of bounded variation taking values in a Banach or metric space

We study functions of bounded variation with values in a Banach or in a metric space. In finite dimensions, there are three well-known topologies; we argue that in infinite dimensions there is a natural fourth topology. We provide some insight into the structure of these four topologies. In particular, we study the meaning of convergence, duality and regularity for these topologies and provide some useful compactness criteria, also related to the classical Aubin–Lions theorem. After this we study the Borel \(\sigma \)-algebras induced by these topologies, and we provide some results about probability measures on the space of functions of bounded variation, which can be used to study stochastic processes of bounded variation.
