We are now in a position to construct a definitive theory for measuring subsets of ${\displaystyle \mathbb {R} }$ 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 ${\displaystyle \mathbb {R} }$ whose domain is the Borel σ-algebra ${\displaystyle {\mathcal {B}}_{\mathbb {R} }}$; such measures are called Borel measures on ${\displaystyle \mathbb {R} }$.
