Abstract: We develop a partitioning lemma (see Lemma 5) for superadditive set functions satisfying certain continuity conditions. This leads to a relatively simple proof of two theorems of A. S. Besicovitch on when a function of a complex variable that is continuous and differentiable outside of small exceptional sets is analytic (or almost everywhere equal to an analytic function).
