Abstract: Let $ \mu $ be a nonnegative measure, and let $ m$ be a measure having values in a real or complex vector space $ V$. This paper presents a comprehensive treatment of the question: When is $ m$ the indefinite integral with respect to $ \mu $ of a $ V$ valued function $ f?$ Previous results are generalized, and two new types of Radon-Nikodym derivative, the ``type $ \rho $'' function and the ``strongly $ \Gamma $ integrable'' function, are introduced. A derivative of type $ \rho $ may be obtained in every previous Radon-Nikodym theorem known to the author, and a preliminary result is presented which gives necessary and sufficient conditions for the measure $ m$ to be the indefinite integral of a type $ \rho $ function. The treatment is elementary throughout, and in particular will include the first elementary proof of the Radon-Nikodym theorem of Phillips.
