Measure

1. What is Lebesgue measure of set N? (I found somewhere it's infinity, but, i think it's zero...)

2. If i have infinite sum of countable many functions (sum of some sequence), can I write this as countable many infinite sums sums of that function?
For example, SUM(a1+a2+....)=SUM(a1)+SUM(a2)+... (where sum is infinite, for example from 0 to infinity).

1) On the real line, the Lebesgue measure of any countable set is 0. N (integers) is a countable set.
2) If the sum is absolutely convergent, yes. Otherwise - maybe.

Re: Measure

For the first question. So, measure of countable set is 0. If measure is 0, is that set countabe? Is that If and only if?

No. It is possible (with a lttle work) to construct non-countable sets of measure 0.

The Cantor set is the classic example of an uncountable set of measure zero.
