Abstract

In Real Analysis, Littlewood's three principles are known as heuristics that help teach the essentials of measure theory and reveal the analogies between the concepts of topological space and continuous function on one side and those of measurable space and measurable function on the other one. They are based on important and rigorous statements, such as Lusin's and Egoroff-Severini's theorems, and have ingenious and elegant proofs. We shall comment on those theorems and show how their proofs can possibly be made simpler by introducing a fourth principle. These alternative proofs make even more manifest those analogies and show that Egoroff-Severini's theorem can be considered as the natural generalization of the classical Dini's monotone convergence theorem.
