A necessary and sufficient condition for a summable function f∈L([a,b]) to be equivalent to an absolutely continuous (AC) function is given. Our method is based uniquely on evaluation of integrals and not on classical “ε–δ” definitions. A condition for the existence of an AC function is discussed. Also the case of functions of many variables is studied.
