A positive step function f can be written uniquely in the form f = Σa1 A • a linear combination, with positive pairwise distinct coefficients, of indicator functions of a finite disjunct sequence of measurable sets. Define the integral of f on S with respect to λ, using this representation of f, by
$$ \int\limits_S {fd\lambda = \sum a \bullet \lambda \left( {A \bullet } \right)} . $$
