## A.5 The essential supremum of a family of random variables

In this section, we discuss the essential supremum of an arbitrary family Φ of random variables on a given probability space (Ω,F, P). Consider first the case in which the set Φ is countable. Then φ(ω) := supφφ(ω) will also be a random variable, Φ i.e., φ is measurable. Measurability of the pointwise supremum, however, is not guaranteed if Φ is uncountable. Even if the pointwise supremum is measurable, it may not be the right concept, when we focus on almost sure properties. This can be illustrated by taking P as the Lebesgue measure on Ω := [0, 1] and Φ := {{x} | 0 x 1}. Then sup ...
