Abstract: Liapounoff's theorem states that if is a measurable space and is nonatomic, bounded, and countably additive, then is compact and convex. When is replaced by a -complete Boolean algebra or an -algebra (to be defined) and is allowed to be only finitely additive, is still convex. If is any Boolean algebra supporting nontrivial, nonatomic, finitely-additive measures and is a zonoid, there exists a nonatomic measure on with range dense in . A wide variety of pathology is examined which indicates that ranges of finitely-additive, nonatomic, finite-dimensional, vector-valued measures are fairly arbitrary.
