Measure Theory

  • Quantity systems, quantity functions, measures
  • Measure expansion according to Carathéodory
  • Lebesgu measure in R^n
  • Probability distributions on R

Integration theory

  • Measurable mappings
  • Integration with respect to general measures
  • Convergence Theorems
  • The L_p spaces
  • Product measures, theorem of Fubini
  • Measures with densities and the Radon-Nikodým theorem
  • The transformation formula
  • Absolute functions and the main theorem of differential and integral calculus

Qualification Goals

The students

  • are familiar with an abstract concept of measure and integration, which is necessary as a basis for advanced study of stochastics and calculus,
  • have practiced mathematical ways of working (developing mathematical intuition and its formal justification, abstraction, proof),
  • have improved their oral communication skills in exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and in discussion.


None. The competences taught in the following modules are recommended: either Foundations of Mathematics and Linear Algebra I and Linear Algebra II or Basic Linear Algebra, either Analysis I and Analysis II or Basic Real Analysis.
