Measure Theory and Integration
Fundamentals of measure and integration theory. Lecture series.
28 Jul 2014 to 25 Sep 2014
What does it mean for a subset E of Rd to be measurable? If a set E is measurable, how does one define its measure? What nice properties or axioms does measure (or the concept of measurability) obey? Does the measure of an “ordinary” set equal the “naive geometric measure” of such sets? (e.g. is the measure of an a×b rectangle equal to ab?)
Trying to answer these questions, we will study the concepts of Jordan measure and Riemann integral which are elementary enough to measure most of the “ordinary” sets (like area under the curve of a continuous function) and then a more general notion of Lebesgue measure and Lebesgue integral which extends the Jordan measure to measure almost all sets that arise in analysis.
Measure theory and integration theory are of fundamental importance in all of applied mathematics, specifically in the foundations of probability theory, and in the theory of differential equations.
