Measure theory

  • Set systems, functions on sets, measures
  • Extension of a measure according to Carathéodory
  • Lebesgue measure on R^n
  • Probability distributions on R

Integration theory

  • Measurable maps
  • Integration with respect to general measures
  • Convergence theorems
  • Product measures, Fubini's Theorem
  • The Banach space L_1

Qualification Goals

The students shall

  • learn the abstract concepts of measure and of integration, which are necessary as a basis for an advanced study of stochastics and analysis,
  • practice mathematical working methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof techniques),
  • improve their oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussions.


Translation is missing. Here is the German original:

Keine. Empfohlen werden die Kompetenzen, die in den mathematischen Basismodulen Lineare Algebra und Analysis vermittelt werden.
