measures and metrics

Hi, I have a compact (under weak convergence)
convex set which is a subset of the space of real valued
measures on a compact subset of \Re^n. I know the extreme points of
this set, and want to write the Choquet representation.

Is d(a,b)= \int |a-b|, where a,b are measures the right metric? (Is
it a complete metric?)
If so, is this all I need?

Is there a good reference for this stuff, at a somewhat elementary level.
I'm a novice at measure theory.
