  • Terence Tao: An introduction to measure theory. A draft copy is freely available on the author's webpage, click here for the pdf file.
  • Sheldon Axler: Measure, Integration and Real Analysis. The electronic version is available without cost, click here to find the pdf file.

I have come to the conclusion that the Tao book has many nice ideas, but it is not well suited to study from for a student new to this topic. With help from fellow mathematicians I have found a very well structured textbook and choose to switch to that. Hence from now on there will be the Axler book which will be the main text book. A list of chapters that will be covered will be filled in within a day or two


Chapters 2,3,4 and 5 from Sheldon Axlers book

In week 35 we covered 2A and parts of 2B In week 36 we will continue covering 2B and do parts of 2C In week 37 we will cover material from 2 D and 2E including Egorov's theorem In week 38 we will finish off the material from 2E and also cover section 3A In week 39 I will cover section 3B and parts of section 4A We will also discuss examples that are not in the text In week 40 we will talk about the material fro section 4A and 4B In week 41 we will cover 5A, 5B and parts of 5C I will change the proofs and definitions a bit from the book We have gone a bit slower then anticipated so in week 42 we will continue with the material from Chapter 5. Future plans for the course: After reviewing some material in Banach space we will study L^p spaces. In week 43 we will finish the material in section 5C and also start a review on Banach Spaces In week 44 we will talk about the material in section 7A and some from 7B In week 45 we will finish 7 b.We shall also start the review MATERIAL THAT WILL BE COVERED ON THE EXAM: Chapter 2 all, Chapter 3 all, Chapter 4 except the part that starts with 4.20, Chapter 5 all, Chapter 7 all
