Analogues of Fatou's Lemma and Lebesgue's convergence theorems are established for fdμn when {μn} is a sequence of measures. A “generalized” Dominated Convergence Theorem is also proved for the asymptotic behavior of fndμn and the latter is shown to be a special case of a more general result established in vector lattices and related to the Dunford-Pettis property in Banach spaces.
