Divergence measure fields are $L^{p}$-summable vector fields whose divergence is a Radon measure. These new function spaces were introduced in the early 2000s by many authors for different purposes. Divergence measure fields provide a way to extend the Gauss-Green formula to the context of weakly differentiable vector fields and sets of finite perimeter. For my Master's thesis (written under the supervision of Prof. K. R. Payne), we explored especially the case $p = \infty$. Our method of proving the Gauss-Green formula for essentially bounded divergence-measure fields is different from the one of Chen, Torres and Ziemer, since we adapted the techniques already developed for BV functions in Vol'pert's work.
