Last year, I managed to successfully finish Metric Spaces, Basic Topology and other Analysis topics. Starting from the next semester I’ll be learning more pure mathematical topics, like Functional Analysis, Combinatorics and more. The plan is to lead myself to Combinatorics by majoring Functional Analysis and Topology. But before all those, I’ll be studying measure theory and probability this July – August. Probability theory is not so important as is Measure Theory. This post discusses a rough plan of how should I (& you) begin the study of Measure theory by using great free internet resources. .

This YouTube playlist , compiled by Sam Kolahgar might be the best visual guide for me through the learning period. It has several amazing videos with excellent learning material. The most essential text-guide for Measure Theory will be this pdf file which can be downloaded from Terence Tao’s blog. It is, actually a rough draft copy of his amazing Measure Theory book but enough to introduce basic things. There are also other Measure Theory, Functional Analysis, Metric Space and Real Analysis texts which contain enough material to be read and understood.

D’ ALEMBERT’s Test of Convergence of Series

Statement A series $ \sum {u_n}$ of positive terms is convergent if from and after some fixed term $ \dfrac {u_{n+1}} {u_n} < r < {1} $ , where r is a fixed number. The series is divergent if $ \dfrac{u_{n+1}} {u_n} > 1$ from and after some fixed term. D’ Alembert’s Test is also known as the ratio test…

Essential Steps of Problem Solving in Mathematical Sciences

Learning how to solve problems in mathematics is simply to know what to look for.   Mathematics problems often require established procedures. To become a problem solver, one must know What, When and How to apply them. To identify procedures, you have to be familiar with the different problem situations. You must also be good in gathering information, extracting strategies…

Triangle Inequality

Triangle inequality has its name on a geometrical fact that the length of one side of a triangle can never be greater than the sum of the lengths of other two sides of the triangle. If $ a$ , $ b$ and $ c$ be the three sides of a triangle, then neither $ a$ can be greater than $…

The Area of a Disk

If you are aware of elementary facts of geometry, then you might know that the area of a disk with radius $ R$ is $ \pi R^2$ . The radius is actually the measure(length) of a line joining the center of disk and any point on the circumference of the disk or any other circular lamina. Radius for a disk…

The Cattle Problem

This is a famous problem of intermediate analysis, also known as ‘Archimedes’ Cattle Problem Puzzle’, sent by Archimedes to Eratosthenes as a challenge to Alexandrian scholars. In it one is required to find the number of bulls and cows of each of four colors, the eight unknown quantities being connected by nine conditions. These conditions ultimately form a Pell equation…
