General Course Information
Course Code PURE MTH 7071 Course Integration & Analysis Coordinating Unit Pure Mathematics Term Semester 2 Level Postgraduate Coursework Location/s North Terrace Campus Units 3 Contact Up to 3 hours per week Prerequisites MATHS 1012 Assumed Knowledge MATHS 2100 or PURE MTH 3002 Course Description The Riemann integral works well for continuous functions on closed bounded intervals, but it has certain deficiencies that cause problems, for example, in Fourier analysis and in the theory of differential equations. To overcome such deficiencies, a "new and improved" version of the integral was developed around the beginning of the twentieth century, and it is this theory with which this course is concerned. The underlying basis of the theory, measure theory, has important applications not just in analysis but also in the modern theory of probability.
Topics covered are: Set theory; Lebesgue outer measure; measurable sets; measurable functions. Integration of measurable functions over measurable sets. Convergence of sequences of functions and their integrals. General measure spaces and product measures. Fubini and Tonelli's theorems. Lp spaces. The Radon-Nikodym theorem. The Riesz representation theorem. Integration and differentiation.

Learning & Teaching Activities
Learning & Teaching ModesOver the course of 30 lectures, the lecturer presents the course material to the students and guides them through it. During this time students are expected to engage with the material being presented in lectures, identifying any difficulties that may arise in their understanding of it, and interacting with the lecturer to overcome these difficulties. It is expected that students will attend all lectures, but lectures may be recorded (where facilities allow for this) to help with incidental absences and for revision purposes. In fortnightly tutorials students present their solutions to assigned exercises and discuss these with the lecturer and their fellow students. Fortnightly homework assignments help students strengthen their understanding of the theory and their skills in applying it, and allow them to gauge their progress.
The information below is provided as a guide to assist students in engaging appropriately with the course requirements.

The University's policy on Assessment for Coursework Programs is based on the following four principles:
- Assessment must encourage and reinforce learning.
- Assessment must enable robust and fair judgements about student performance.
- Assessment practices must be fair and equitable to students and give them the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned.
- Assessment must maintain academic standards.

Grade Descriptors are available which provide a general guide to the standard of work that is expected at each grade level. More information at Assessment for Coursework Programs.
Final results for this course will be made available through Access Adelaide.
The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.
SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.
The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
