A panorama of Hungarian mathematics in the twentieth by Janos Horvath

By Janos Horvath

A excellent interval of Hungarian arithmetic began in 1900 whilst Lipót Fejér came upon the summability of Fourier series.This was once by means of the discoveries of his disciples in Fourier research and within the idea of analytic services. even as Frederic (Frigyes) Riesz created sensible research and Alfred Haar gave the 1st instance of wavelets. Later the subjects investigated by means of Hungarian mathematicians broadened significantly, and incorporated topology, operator idea, differential equations, chance, and so forth. the current quantity, the 1st of 2, offers essentially the most amazing effects accomplished within the 20th century by way of Hungarians in research, geometry and stochastics.

The booklet is available to somebody with a minimal wisdom of arithmetic. it's supplemented with an essay at the background of Hungary within the 20th century and biographies of these mathematicians who're not energetic. an inventory of all folks said within the chapters concludes the amount.

In either case {x : f (x) > a} is a Borel set. 11 Let (X, A) be a measurable space and let f : X → R be a A measurable function. If A is in the Borel σ-algebra on R, then f −1 (A) ∈ A. Proof. Let B be the Borel σ-algebra on R and C = {A ∈ B : f −1 (A) ∈ A}. If A1 , A2 , . . ∈ C, then since f −1 (∪i Ai ) = ∪i f −1 (Ai ) ∈ A, we have that C is closed under countable unions. Similarly C is closed under countable intersections and complements, so C is a σ-algebra. Since f is measurable, C contains (a, ∞) for every real a, hence C contains the σ-algebra generated by these intervals, that is, C contains B.

N→∞ 50 CHAPTER 6. 4 Let (X, A, µ) be a measure space and suppose µ is σ-finite. Suppose f is integrable. Prove that given ε there exists δ such that |f (x)| µ(dx) < ε A whenever µ(A) < δ. 5 Suppose µ(X) < ∞ and fn is a sequence of bounded real-valued measurable functions that converge to f uniformly. Prove that fn dµ → f dµ. This is sometimes called the bounded convergence theorem. 6 If fn is a sequence of non-negative integrable functions such that fn (x) decreases to f (x) for every x, prove that fn dµ → f dµ.

The second equality follows from the definition of A with E first replaced by E ∩A and then by E ∩Ac . The first three summands on the right of the second equals sign have a sum greater than or equal to µ∗ (E ∩ (A ∪ B)) because A ∪ B ⊂ (A ∩ B) ∪ (A ∩ B c ) ∪ (Ac ∩ B). Since Ac ∩ B c = (A ∪ B)c , then µ∗ (E) ≥ µ∗ (E ∩ (A ∪ B)) + µ∗ (E ∩ (A ∪ B)c ), which shows A ∪ B ∈ A. Therefore A is an algebra. 1. OUTER MEASURES 23 Step 2. Next we show A is a σ-algebra. Let Ai be pairwise disjoint sets in A, let Bn = ∪ni=1 Ai , and B = ∪∞ i=1 Ai .
