Who first proved a generalized Fubini theorem for integrals of order $≥3$?

An $n$th order integral is $$\underbrace{\underset{x_n}\int\underset{x_{n-1}}\int\ldots\underset{x_1}\int}_{n} f(x_1,x_2,\ldots,x_n)dx_1dx_2\ldots dx_n.$$

By "a generalized Fubini theorem," I mean that all permutations of the $x_i$ produce valid and equivalent integrals.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you clarify your sense of "order $\ge$ 3"? $\endgroup$ – paul garrett Oct 8 at 21:10
  • $\begingroup$ @paulgarrett See what I added. $\endgroup$ – Geremia Oct 8 at 21:35
  • $\begingroup$ Odd -- I would have thought that any proof for order 2 would suffice to prove for order N. Just break into a double-integral inside or outside of the remaining integrals. We may need some commentary from math.SE here $\endgroup$ – Carl Witthoft Oct 9 at 14:31

    $\begingroup$ It is a trivial consequence of order 2 and induction. You can get any permutation by transposing pairs. $\endgroup$ – Conifold Oct 9 at 22:00
  • $\begingroup$ @Conifold There was no commentary on math.SE on this question (as you can see). Anway, an inductive argument should be sufficient. $\endgroup$ – mrtaurho Oct 10 at 13:17
