Let T be a completely regular topological space and C(T) be the space of bounded, continuous real-valued functions on T. C(T) is endowed with the strict topology (the topology generated by seminorms determined by continuous functions vanishing at in_nity). R. Giles ([13], p. 472, Theorem 4.6) proved in 1971 that the dual of C(T) can be identi_ed with the space of regular Borel measures on T. We prove this result for positive, additive set-valued maps with values in the space of convex weakly compact non-empty subsets of a Banach space and we deduce from this result the theorem of R. Giles ([13], theorem 4.6, p.473).
