·
**Textbook**: Folland, Real Analysis, Second
Edition, Wiley Interscience 1999, ISBN 0471317160. We will cover the last part of Chapter 3
(Sections 3.4-3.5; Lebesgue differentiation theorem) and Chapters 4-6
(Topology, function spaces, L^p spaces); some variation from this plan may
develop depending on time constraints. If you were not in last quarter’s
245A class, you should read Chapter 1-3 by yourself to acquaint yourself with
some background material. Note that a
current list of errata to this text is maintained here
(thanks to Julia Garibaldi for pointing this out).

·
**Prerequisite**: Math 245A (or
equivalent). In particular, students
should be familiar with measure spaces, the Lebesgue integral, metric spaces,
and various types of convergence of functions (e.g. pointwise versus uniform
convergence).

·
**Grading**: Homework (30%), Midterm (30%),
Final (40%). In addition, a nominal
bonus point (1%) will be awarded to each student who presents at least one
homework problem at the blackboard during at least one quiz section.

·
**Exams**: The midterm will be on Wednesday,
Feb 9, with format and topics to be chosen later. The midterm is open book and open notes. The final will be on Thursday March 24, at
3:00 pm, MS 5138, with format and topics to be chosen later. The final is open book and open notes. Makeup exams will only be available by prior
arrangement or by an exceptionally good excuse after the fact. Requests to reweight the exam gradings also
require an exceptionally good excuse (i.e. better than “I did poorly on
my midterm”).

·
**Reading
Assignment**: You should read Chapter 3 if you have not already encountered
this material. Of course, you should
also be reading the sections covered in lecture (and homework) concurrently
with the course.

·
**Homework**: There will be eight homework
assignments, due in Quiz sections. The
lowest homework score will be dropped.
In each assignment, three of the homework questions, selected at random,
will be graded in detail. NOTE: In your
assignments you may freely use the axiom of choice.
