Surmartingales-mesures (Martingale theory)

Consider a discrete filtration $({\cal F}_n)$ and let ${\cal A}$ be the algebra, $\cup_n {\cal F}_n$, generating a $\sigma$-algebra ${\cal F}_\infty$. A positive supermartingale $(X_n)$ is called a supermartingale measure if the set function $A\mapsto\lim_n\int_A X_n\,dP$ on $A$ is $\sigma$-additive, and thus can be extended to a measure $\mu$. Then the Lebesgue decomposition of this measure is described (theorem 1). More generally, the Lebesgue decomposition of any measure $\mu$ on ${\cal F}_\infty$ is described. This is meant to complete theorem III.1.5 in Neveu,*Martingales à temps discret *

Comment: The author points out at the end that theorem 2 had been already proved by Horowitz (*Zeit. für W-theorie,* 1978) in continuous time. This topic is now called Kunita decomposition, see 1005 and the corresponding references
