An agreement, treaty, or contract.

The Constitution contains the Compact Clause, which prohibits one state from entering into a compact with another state without the consent of Congress.

The classical result [5, Corollary 19.7.7] says that if [OMEGA] is a scattered compact space (i.e., every nonempty closed subset of [OMEGA] has an isolated point), then M([OMEGA]) consists of atomic measures only; that is, M([OMEGA]) is order-isometric to [l.sub.1]([OMEGA]).
