DESPERATELY needs fleshing out
Definition
For a simple function in its standard representation, say [ilmath]f:=\sum^n_{i=0}x_i\mathbf{1}_{A_i}[/ilmath] then the [ilmath]\mu[/ilmath]integral, [ilmath]I_\mu:\mathcal{E}^+\rightarrow\mathbb{R} [/ilmath] is^{[1]}:
 [math]I_\mu(f):=\sum^n_{i=1}x_i\mu(A_i)\in[0,\infty][/math]
Note that this is independent of the particular standard representation of [ilmath]f[/ilmath].
Proof of claims
Claim 1: the [ilmath]\mu[/ilmath]integral of a simple function is independent of which standard representation it is evaluated as.
