An Introduction to Lebesgue Integration and Fourier Series (Dover Books on Advanced Mathematics)by Howard J. Wilcox
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This book arose out of the authors' desire to present Lebesgue integration and Fourier series on an undergraduate level, since most undergraduate texts do not cover this material or do so in a cursory way. The result is a clear, concise, wellorganized introduction to such topics as the Riemann integral, measurable sets, properties of measurable sets, measurable functions, the Lebesgue integral, convergence and the Lebesgue integral, pointwise convergence of Fourier series and other subjects. The authors not only cover these topics in a useful and thorough way, they have taken pains to motivate the student by keeping the goals of the theory always in sight, justifying each step of the development in terms of those goals. In addition, whenever possible, new concepts are related to concepts already in the student's repertoire. Finally, to enable readers to test their grasp of the material, the text is supplemented by numerous examples and exercises. Mathematics students as well as students of engineering and science will find here a superb treatment, carefully thought out and well presented , that is ideal for a one semester course. The only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of advanced calculus, including the notions of compactness, continuity, uniform convergence and Riemann integration. Synopsis:Clear and concise introductory treatment for undergraduates covers Riemann integral, measurable sets and their properties, measurable functions, Lebesgue integral and convergence, pointwise conversion of Fourier series, other subjects. 1978 edition.
