Topics.
This course will provide a rigorous introduction to
measurable functions, Lebesgue integration, Banach spaces
and duality.
Possible topics include:

Measure and Integration

Real numbers; open sets; Borel sets.

Measurable functions. Littlewood's 3 principles.

Lebesgue integration

Monotonicity, bounded variation, absolute continuity.

Differentiable and convex functions.

Banach spaces

The classical Banach spaces.

Hilbert spaces and Fourier analysis.

Topological spaces; C(X).

Compactness; ArzelaAscoli.

Functional Analysis

HahnBanach theorem.

Baire category.

Open mapping theorem, closed graph theorem, uniform boundedness principle.

Weak topologies, Alaoglu's theorem.

Measures as the dual of C(X).
Reading and Lectures.
Students are responsible for all topics covered in
the readings and lectures.
Assigned material should be read before
coming to class. Lectures may go beyond the
reading, and not every topic in the reading will be
covered in class.
Grades.
Grades will be based on homework (40%), an inclass midterm (20%) and a
takehome final (40%).
Homework.
Homework will be assigned every week.
Late homework will not be accepted,
however your lowest homework score will be dropped.
Collaboration between students is encouraged,
but you must write your own solutions, understand them and give credit to your collaborators.
Please use only the course texts, course web page and
your own lecture notes for homework.
Midterm.
There will be an inclass midterm, covering the first half of
the course. It will be given in approximately the 7th week of the course.
Final.
There will be a takehome final exam, to be completed
during reading period.
Calendar 2014.
