MATH30360 Measure Theory and Integration

Academic Year 2022/2023

Measure theory simply seeks to assign a measure, or quantity, to certain sets (typically in R^n) which is consistent, reasonably general, and agrees with our intuition in familiar situations. With this, one can develop the Lebesgue theory of integration which has several advantages over the rather limited Riemann integral. The material is fundamental to modern analysis, particularly probability theory, stochastic processes and the mathematical models of financial markets.
