Abstract: In §2 the spaces $ L^2(\Sigma,H) $ are described; this is a solution of a problem posed by M. G. Krein.

In §3 unitary dilations are used to illustrate the techniques of operator measures. In particular, a simple proof of the Naimark dilation theorem is presented, together with an explicit construction of a resolution of the identity. In §4, the multiplicity function $ N_{\Sigma} $ is introduced for an arbitrary (nonorthogonal) operator measure in $ H $. The description of $ L^2(\Sigma,H) $ is employed to show that this notion is well defined. As a supplement to the Naimark dilation theorem, a criterion is found for an orthogonal measure $ E $ to be unitarily equivalent to the minimal (orthogonal) dilation of the measure $ \Sigma $.

In §5 it is proved that the set $\Omega_{\Sigma}$ of all principal vectors of an arbitrary operator measure $ \Sigma $ in $ H $ is massive, i.e., it is a dense $ G_{\delta} $-set in $ H $. In particular, it is shown that the set of principal vectors of a selfadjoint operator is massive in any cyclic subspace.

In §6, the Hellinger types are introduced for an arbitrary operator measure; it is proved that subspaces realizing these types exist and form a massive set.

In §7, a model of a symmetric operator in the space $ L^2(\Sigma,H) $ is studied.
