      We are now in a position to construct a definitive theory for measuring subsets of based on the idea that the measure of an interval is its length. We begin with a more general (but only slightly more complicated) construction that yields a large family of measures on whose domain is the Borel σ-algebra ; such measures are called Borel measures on .
