Abstract

The notion of nonatomicity for set functions plays a key role in classical measure theory and its applications. For classical measures taking values in finite dimensional Banach spaces, it guarantees the connectedness of range. Even just replacing $\sigma$-additivity with finite additivity for measures requires some stronger nonatomicity property for the same conclusion to hold. In the present paper, we deal with non-additive functions --called '$s$-outer' and 'quasi-triangular'--, defined on rings and taking values in Hausdorff topological spaces. No algebraic structure is required on their target spaces. In this context, we make use of a notion of strong nonatomicity involving just the behavior of functions on ultrafilters of their underlying Boolean domains. This notion is proved to be equivalent to that proposed in earlier contributions concerning Lyapunov-types theorems in additive and non-additive frameworks. Thus, in particular, our analysis allows to generalize, improve and unify several known results on this topic.
