    • The course will follow these lecture notes written by Juha Kinnunen. There is no need to buy any books.
    • We have adopted a flipped classroom model for the course. The participants are expected to study the announced pages of the lecture notes before each lecture. We shall discuss the material interactively at the lectures.

    • Here are some comments about things related to the lecture notes:

      • For outer measures, measurability is defined in Definition 1.4, but for measure, measurability just means that the set belongs to the sigma-algebra, where the measure is defined. Usually this does not cause too much confusion as measurable sets for measures also satisfy the condition in Definition 1.4. whenever the quantities are defined.

    • Preliminaries

      In this course, we assume that the students have studied the course Metric spaces (old name Euklidiset avaruudet / Euclidean spaces). In particular, you should know:

      • real numbers, supremum, infimum
      • countable and uncountable sets
      • open and closed sets, boundary, closure
      • compact sets and coverings
      • sequences in metric spaces
      • function sequences
      • continuity

      You can study these topics for example from the course material of the Metric space -course or from

      Rudin: Principles of Mathematical Analysis

      • Section 2 contains most important concepts
      • Part of Sections 3 and 4 can be also useful
