Abstract

We prove that the limit of a sequence of Pettis integrable bounded scalarly measurable weak random elements, of finite weak norm, with values in the dual of a non-separable Banach space is Pettis integrable. Then we provide basic properties for the Pettis conditional expectation, and prove that it is continuous. Calculus of Pettis conditional expectations in general is very different from the calculus of Bochner conditional expectations due to the lack of strong measurability and separability. In two examples, we derive the Pettis conditional expectations.
