MAT 544, Real Analysis I
Office: 4-112 Mathematics Building
Dept. Phone: (631)-632-8290
Time and place: TuTh 1:00-2:20, Physics P-129
We will use the text `Real Analysis' by
by Gerald Folland, secondedition, published by
I hope to cover Chapters 1-3, and parts of 4 and 5. Chapter 0
is prerequisite material but I may discuss it briefly if needed.
My office hours will be Tu-Th 11:10-12:00
in my office, 4-112 in the Math Building.
This is an introductory course on measure theory, with a
bit of point set topology and functional analysis thrown in.
Homework problems will be handed in at class each Tuesday.
The following is a tentative
lecture and homework schedule .
problem set for Chapter 0.
Although it is not required, you may wish to consider writing
up your solution in TeX, since eventually you will probably use this
to write your thesis and papers. Here are a sample
and what the resulting output
looks like .
You can use the first file as a template to create your own TeX files.
Numerous guides exist online that give the basic rules and commands.
The first lecture is Tuesday, Feb 1. The last class meeting is
Thursday May 12.
There is no class during spring recess: April 18-24
There will be a midterm exam on Thursday March 31
and a final at
11:15am-1:45pm on Thursday, May 19 (in Physics P-124, the usual room).
Homework, midterm and final will count for 30%, 30% and 40% of your grade respectively.
The final will be in our usual room.
Here are the midgterms and finals for a 2-semester
course from Rudin's 'Principles of Mathematical Analysis'.
These should give you an idea of what would be good to
know entering this course:
midterm 1 ,
final 1 ,
midterm 2 ,
