Abstract: Let be a locally compact group and a Banach space. The left module is by definition absolutely continuous under the composition if for there exist with . If the locally compact Hausdorff space is a transformation group over and has a measure quasi-invariant with respect to , then is an absolutely continuous module--the main object we study. If is measurable, let consist of all functions in vanishing outside . For not locally null and a closed linear subspace of , we observe the connection between the closed linear span (denoted ) of the elements , with and , and the collection of functions of shifted by elements in . As a result, a closed linear subspace of is an for some measurable if and only if it is closed under pointwise multiplication by elements of . This allows the theorem stating that if and are both measurable, then there is a measurable subset of such that . Under certain restrictions on , we show that this is essentially open in the (usually stronger) orbit topology on . Finally we prove that if and are both relatively sigma-compact, and if also , then there exist and locally almost everywhere equal to and respectively, such that ; in addition we characterize those and for which and .
