### Course Description

In this course, we develop the theory of Lebesgue integral. We do this after a brief discussion of the limitations of the Riemann integral that the students are expected to have already learnt. First, we must discuss the question of assigning a measure to as large a collection of sets as possible. This done, we introduce the notion of a simple function. We then develop an integration theory due to Lebesgue by approximating functions by simple functions instead of step functions. Applications are plenty, we discuss only the theory of $L_{p}$ spaces and time permitting, the theory of direct integrals.
