Abstract: We investigate the effects of having an absolute continuity relation between the time-ordering measures in Feynman's operational calculus. In particular, we obtain some theorems concerning the formation of functions of several noncommuting operators or operator-valued functions under specific absolute continuity assumptions on the time-ordering measures.
