MATH 411 - Real Analysis
This is a course that covers Lebesgue measure and integration. Lebesgue integrals extend the range of functions that can be integrated in the familiar Riemann sense first encountered in calculus. Lebesgue integration places real analysis on the equivalent complexity level of rigorous probability theory. Probability in economics, for example, arises from integration of random processes such as Brownian motion used in asset pricing models and risk analysis. The course will include the study of measurable sets, existence of non-measurable sets, measurable functions and integrable functions.
