# Continuity of Borel measurable Gleason frame functions

Gleason's theorem (Journal of Mathematics and Mechanics, Vol. 6, No. 6, 1957) classifies measures on the closed subspaces of a separable Hilbert space. A key lemma toward the proof of the theorem asserts the following. Let f be a nonnegative real-valued function on the 2-sphere in 3-space with the property that its sum on any triple of orthogonal points is independent of the triple. Then f is continuous. The question is whether the conclusion remains valid if one drops the nonnegativity assumption and assumes Borel measurability instead.

Gleason theorem (for von Neumann algebras, and even JBW algebras, without type I_2 part) has been extended to signed / complex measures (and even suitable vector valued measures). S.Maeda, Bunce and Maitland wright wrote surveys around 20 years ago. – user24527 Jun 26 '12 at 23:14
