MATH 131C: Topics in Analysis

**Course description**: This
is the third quarter of a sequence on Analysis, completing the honors
sequence as well as the regular Math 131AB.

We will review the Riemann integral in **R**^{n}
and then discuss Lebesgue measure,
the Lebesgue integral, several convergence theorems,
the relation of
Lebesgue integration
with Riemann integration, and finally differentiation theory.
We will cover chapters 1 and 2 of the Stein-Shakarchi textbook in detail,
as well as selected topics from chapters 3 and 4. Proofs will be important,
and the best attitude to bring to this class
is not to believe any theorem that you don't
know how to prove.

**Textbook**:
E. M. Stein and R. Shakarchi, *Real Analysis*,
Princeton University Press (2005), ISBN 0-691-11386-6.
**Prerequisite**: Math 131B or 131BH is required.

**Midterm Exams:** We will have two midterm exams.
The dates are Monday, April 23 and Monday, May 21.
There will be no makeup exams.

**Final Exam:** The final exam is on Wednesday, June 13, 2018
from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM.
You must take the final to pass the class! If you have a documented
reason that you are unable to take the final, you will receive an Incomplete.

**Evaluation:**
- Every exam will include at least one problem taken from the homework,
possibly with minor variations.
- It is your responsibility to know how to do the problems.
Practicing that is an essential part of studying for the exams.
- A grade of 'F' will be assigned to any student who misses the final. Incompletes are reserved for those who have completed all of the work for the class, including both midterms,
but who, for a legitimate, documented reason, miss the final.
- Exams (or copies) will be returned, but I will keep
copies (or originals) of the exams, as required by the math department.
