Re: meaning of additivity when defining signed measure

a typo: 2^B should be replaced with B.
Quote:  the following three conditions:
1. v assumes at most one of the values +oo, oo (so to avoid oo  oo.
oo means infinity)
2. v(\emptyset) = 0
3. v( \union_i E_i ) = \sum_i v(E_i) for any sequence E_i of disjoint
measurable sets, "the equality is taken to mean that the series on the
right converges absolutely if v(\union E_i) is finite and that it
properly diverges otherwise."
My question is what is the precise meaning of the phrase "properly
diverges otherwise" in the third condition.
I suspect the meaning is that if the left side is +oo, the partial sums
on the right approaches +oo. Similarly for oo case.
