To this aim we introduce definitions of discrete, continuous and absolutely continuous random closed set, coherently with the classical 0-dimensional case, in order to propose an extension of the standard definition of discrete, continuous, and absolutely continuous random variable, respectively.
Lemma 1 : For a non-negative continuous random variable X, define Z = aX + b, where a>0,b [greater than or equal to] 0 are constant.
