We know that each ultrafilter $p$ on $\mathbb{N}$ can be identified with a finitely additive $\{0,1\}$-valued probablity measure $\mu_{p}$ on the power set of $\mathbb{N}$.

Now my question is which conditions should be added to a topological space $(X,T)$ to provide a situation for it's Stone-Chech compactification to identify each ultrafilter $p$ on $X$ with a measure $\mu_{p}$ on the power set of $X$ (or the sigma-algebra of Borel subsets of $X$)?!

Also it's possible for this measure to has some properties.

    $\begingroup$ Needs more explanation. Does the definition of "ultrafilter" on a topological space have something to do with the topology? There is a measure characterization of realcompact spaces that may (or may not) be what you want here. $\endgroup$ – Gerald Edgar Jul 26 '18 at 15:26
  • $\begingroup$ @GeraldEdgar I have encountered with this question in reading of Vitaly Bergelson survey on Ergodic Ramsey theory during the process of defining Stone-Cech compactification. Where can i find what you said at the end of your comment?! $\endgroup$ – mahdi meisami Jul 26 '18 at 15:34

  • $\begingroup$ @GeraldEdgar what will be happen if we change to this: which conditions on Ston-Chech compatification of $X$ achieved from ultrafilter.? $\endgroup$ – mahdi meisami Jul 26 '18 at 16:46
