Measurability and continuity

2012/2013, sem. 1

Prof. Boris Tsirelson (School of Mathematical Sciences).
Be acquainted with such things as the Hilbert space L2 of square integrable functions on a measure space. Everything else will be explained from scratch. However, some maturity in analysis is needed. (Maturity in probability is not needed.)
Grading policy
Written homework and oral exam.
