MEASURE THEORY AND INTEGRATION "Talking of education, people have now a-days" (said he) "got a strange opinion that every thing should be taught by lectures. Now, I cannot see that lectures can do so much good as reading the books from which the lectures are taken. I know nothing that can be best taught by lectures, except where experiments are to be shewn. You may teach chymestry by lectures — You might teach making of shoes by lectures!" James Bosweil: Life of Samuel Johnson, 1766
ABOUT OUR AUTHOR Gearoid de Barra was born in the city of Galway, West Ireland and moved as a young boy to Dublin where he spent his schooldays. He then studied mathematics at University College Dublin, National University of Ireland where he gained his BSc. Moving to England, he graduated from the University of London with a PhD for research on the convergence of random variables, an area of application of some of the material covered in this book. He then transferred to Hull University in Yorkshire for a teaching appointment; and afterwards spent two summers in 1975 and 1988 in Australia, teaching and researching at the University of New South Wales. More recently, he became Senior Lecturer at the Royal Holloway College, University of London, to continue teaching and research related to aspects of operator theory and measure theory involving ideas from the material in this book. He has enjoyed teaching university mathematics at all undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including many courses on measure theory and its applications to functional analysis, from which source this book has developed. The first edition was the standard text in the departments of mathematics at both Cardiff University and Royal Holloway College, and has attracted attention in Canada and Scandinavia. It was also translated into Italian as Teoria del/a Misura è deli integrazione.
