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.

Difference Paradox

Consider two natural numbers $n_1$ and $n_2$, out of which one is twice as large as the other. We are not told whether $n_1$ is larger or $n_2$, we can state following two propositions: PROPOSITION 1: The difference $n_1-n_2$, if $n_1 >n_2$, is different from the difference $n_2-n_1$, if $n_2 >n_1$. PROPOSITION 2: The difference $n_1-n_2$, if $n_1 >n_2$, is the same…

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 $…

Set Theory, Functions and Real Number System

Sets In mathematics, Set is a well defined collection of distinct objects. The theory of Set as a mathematical discipline rose up with George Cantor, German mathematician, when he was working on some problems in Trigonometric series and series of real numbers, after he recognized the importance of some distinct collections and intervals. Cantor defined the set as a ‘plurality…
