Let (fn) be a sequence of positive P-integrable functions such that (∫ fndP)n converges. We prove that (fn) converges in measure to S0004972700017652_inline1 if and only if equality holds in the generalised Fatou's lemma. Let f be an integrable function such that (xs2225fnfxs22251)n converges. We present in terms of the modulus of uniform integrability of (fn) necessary and sufficient conditions for (fn) to converge in measure to f.
