TheN−1-property of maps and Luzin's condition (N)

  • S. P. Ponomarev


A functionfG→ℝ n , whereG is an open set in ℝ n , has theN−1-property if for allE⊂ℝ n we have {¦E¦=0⇒¦f−1(E)¦=0} (¦·¦ is the Lebesgue measure). The article is concerned with the relations between theN−1-property of functions, the maximal rank of derivatives, and the differentiability almost everywhere of composite functions.
