Abstract: The Radon-Nikodym theorems of Segal and Zaanen are principally concerned with the classification of those measures $ \mu $ for which any $ \lambda \ll \mu $ is given in the form

$\displaystyle ({\text{i}})\quad \lambda (A) = \int_A {gd\mu } $

for all sets $ A$ of finite $ \mu $ measure.

This paper is concerned with the characterization of those pairs $ \lambda ,\mu $ for which the equality (i) holds for every measurable set $ A$, and introduces a notion of compatibility that essentially solves this problem. In addition, some applications are made to Radon-Nikodym theorems for regular Borel measures.
