Students must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of advanced results of measure theory
and real analysis.
In particular, within the program carried out, students must
1. exhibit solid knowledge and thorough conceptual understanding of the subject;
2. be able to produce rigorous proofs of results related to those examined in the course;
3. be able to evaluate coherence and correctness of results obtained by themselves or by others;
4. learn to formulate and communicate mathematical arguments effectively using the appropriate scientifical lexicon;
5. be able to access autonomously scientific books and articles on the subject.
Previous undergraduate courses in algebra, topology and mathematical analysis.
