This chapter sets up the general framework in which we work throughout these volumes. After introducing the relevant notions of measurability for functions taking values in a Banach space, we proceed to define the Bochner integral and the Bochner spaces Lp(S;X), which are the vector-valued counterparts of the Lebesgue integral and the classical Lp-spaces, respectively. We also briefly discuss the weaker Pettis integral. The chapter concludes with a detailed investigation of duality of the Bochner spaces and the related Radon–Nikodým property.
