Conditional expectation of indicator functions #

THIS FILE IS SYNCHRONIZED WITH MATHLIB4. Any changes to this file require a corresponding PR to mathlib4.

This file proves some results about the conditional expectation of an indicator function and as a corollary, also proves several results about the behaviour of the conditional expectation on a restricted measure.

Main result #

Auxiliary lemma for condexp_indicator.

The conditional expectation of the indicator of a function over an m-measurable set with respect to the σ-algebra m is a.e. equal to the indicator of the conditional expectation.

If the restriction to a m-measurable set s of a σ-algebra m is equal to the restriction to s of another σ-algebra m₂ (hypothesis hs), then μ[f | m] =ᵐ[μ.restrict s] μ[f | m₂].
