Resource description

We use Choquet's analytic capacitability theorem and the Kestelman-Borwein-Ditor theorem (on the inclusion of null sequences by translation) to derive results on `analytic automaticity' - for instance, a stronger common generalization of the Jones/Kominek theorems that an additive function whose restriction is continuous/bounded on an analytic set $ T$ spanning $ \mathbb{R}$ (e.g., containing a Hamel basis) is continuous on $ \mathbb{R}$. We obtain results on `compact spannability' - the ability of compact sets to span $ \mathbb{R}$. From this, we derive Jones' Theorem from Kominek's. We cite several applications, including the Uniform Convergence Theorem of regular variation.
