Measure Theory - Course outline
Measure Theory is the basic language of probability theory and real analysis.
The Lebesgue spaces Lp are defined using measure theory, and these form the
key examples used in functional analysis.
This course is also one of the options for a comprehensive exam in the analysis stream of the PhD program, and is a core course for both the pure mathematics
and probability streams of the MA program.
Undergraduate real analysis.
There are no Course Credit Exclusions.
