We study set-valued mappings of bounded variation of one real variable. First we prove the existence of an extension of a metric space valued mapping from a subset of the reals to the whole set of reals with preservation of properties of the initial mapping: total variation, Lipschitz constant or absolute continuity. Then we show that a set-valued mapping of bounded variation defined on an arbitrary subset of the reals admits a regular selection of bounded variation. We introduce a notion of generated set-valued mappings and show that, under suitable assumptions, set-valued mappings (with arbitrary domains) which are Lipschitzian, of bounded variation or absolutely continuous are generated by certain families of mappings with nice properties. Finally, we prove a Castaing type representation theorem for set-valued mappings of bounded variation.
