Measure, integration & probability - Notes

Dr I F Wilde

Measure, integration & probability   (pdf file) (78 pages, 381Kb)

These (draft) notes are based on lectures given some years ago at King's College London (as part of the Mathematics BSc programme). The material is mostly about measure and integration over a finite measure space. (Probabilists are most insistent that their theory is more than just measure theory with the total measure being equal to one.) (Thanks to Sanne Zwart (Florence) for pointing out some misprints.)
