ab: This longish paper celebrates the centenary of the Lebesgue integral, which
even now is seen as the cornerstone of measure theory. Lebesgue wrote
his thesis in 1902, one of the finest ever written, a paradigm for all
modern theories of integration. A thematic rather than chronological
account is given of a saga riddled with surprises.
