Corollary 4.16 needs to be restated as

Corollary 4.16

\(\mathcal{M}_+^s(S)\) is a cone of \(\mathcal{M}(S)\).

\(\mathcal{M}_+^t(S)\) is a cone of \(\mathcal{M}(S)\) if S is complete, because then \(\mathcal{M}_+^t(S) = M_+^s(S)\). In general, \(\mathcal{M}_+^t(S)\) is not a cone of \(\mathcal{M}(S)\) because it is not closed.

It follows from Remark 4.20 that \(\mathcal{M}_+^t(S)\) is dense in \(\mathcal{M}_+^s(S)\). Assume that \(\mathcal{M}_+^t(S)\) is closed and S is separable. Then, \(\mathcal{M}_+^t(S) = \mathcal{M}_+(S)\). This implies that S is universally measurable; however, not all separable metric spaces are universally measurable ([1, Sect. 11.5]).
