This course is intended both for continuing mathematics students and for other students using mathematics at a high level in theoretical physics, engineering and information technology, and mathematical economics.

Topics to be covered will normally include topics from the following, with some additions and variations each year

Measure and Integration - Lebesgue outer measure, measurable sets and integration, Lebesgue integral and basic properties, convergence theorems, connection with Riemann integration, Fubini's theorem, approximation theorems for measurable sets, Lusin's theorem, Egorov's theorem, Lp spaces, general measure theory, Radon-Nikodym theorem

Hilbert Spaces - elementary properties such as Cauchy Schwartz inequality and polarization, nearest point, orthogonal complements, linear operators, Riesz duality, adjoint operator, basic properties or unitary, self adjoint and normal operators, review and discussion of these operators in the complex and real setting, applications to L2 spaces and integral operators, projection operators, orthonormal sets, Bessel's inequality, Fourier expansion, Parseval's equality, applications to Fourier series.

Note: Graduate students attend joint classes with undergraduates.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Explain the fundamental concepts of advanced analysis such as topology and Lebeque integration and their role in modern mathematics and applied contexts
  2. Demonstrate accurate and efficient use of advanced analysis techniques
  3. Demonstrate capacity for mathematical reasoning through analyzing, proving and explaining concepts from advanced analysis
  4. Use deep knowledge and understanding of advanced analysis, such as topology and Lebesgue integration, to formulate responses to complex concrete and abstract problems.

Indicative Assessment

  1. 5 assignments (30) [LO 1,2,3,4]
  2. Mid semester exam (20-30%) (30) [LO 1,2,3,4]
  3. Final exam (40-50%) (40) [LO 1,2,3,4]
  4. Precise weights to be determined in consultation with the class at first lecture. (null) [LO null]

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

The expected workload will consist of approximately 130-140 hours throughout the semester including:

       • Face-to face component which will consist of 12 x 3 hours lectures per semester (36 hours) and 10 hours of workshops throughout the semester.

  • Approximately 80-90 hours of self-study which will include preparation for lectures, workshops, assignments and exams.
