PDE (Spring 2019)

Revision Sessions [lead by Dr. Thomas Johnson]
(The main goal is to go through some old exam problems and to discuss the Revision Sheet. Access to some old mastery question is here: Mastery13 and Mastery14. Solutions: Solution14 and Solution13.)

April 8th, 2pm-3pm, Huxley 658
April 15th, 2pm-3pm, Huxley 140
April 24th, 2pm-3pm, Huxley 140

MEASURE AND INTEGRATION (FALL 2016)

The main text for the course is "Real Analysis" by E. Stein & R. Shakarchi (Princeton University Press). The example sheets are available here

There is also a set of Notes which follow very closely the book. They now contain all material that has been lectured. Please email me for typos and corrections.
