**Limitations of Lebesgue Integral**

The main purpose of Lebesgue integral is to provide an integral notation where limits of integrals hold under mild assumptions. There is no guarantee that every function is Lebesgue integrable. It may happen that improper (Riemann) integral may exist for functions that are not Lebesgue integrable. One example would be . This function is not Lebesgue integrable as . On the other hand, it exists as an improper Riemann integral and the integral can be computed to be finite. An equivalent concept of improper Lebesgue integral does not exist because such a perspective is unnecessary from the viewpoint of the convergence theorems.

“The motion picture made in Hollywood, if it is to create art at all, must do so within such strangling *limitations of* subject and treatment that it is a blind wonder it ever achieves any distinction beyond the purely mechanical slickness of a glass and chromium bathroom.”

—Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

“An island always pleases my imagination, even the smallest, as a small continent and *integral* portion of the globe. I have a fancy for building my hut on one. Even a bare, grassy isle, which I can see entirely over at a glance, has some undefined and mysterious charm for me.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
