Description:
 Aims: To lay the basic technical foundations and establish the main principles which underpin the classical notions of area, volume and the related idea of an integral. To familiarise students with measure as a tool in analysis, functional analysis and probability theory.
Learning Outcomes: On completing the course, students should be able to:
* demonstrate a good knowledge and understanding of the main results and techniques in measure theory;
* demonstrate an understanding of the Lebesgue Integral;
* quote and apply the main inequalities of measure theory in a wide range of contexts.
Skills: Numeracy T/F A
Problem Solving T/F A
Written and Spoken Communication F (in tutorials).
