Comments From Graduate Director: 
This is the first semester of a basic graduate two-semester course (551/651) in real analysis. Real analysis is one of the areas of the M.S. Advanced Exams/Ph.D. entrance exams and the full-year sequence should be taken if preparing for the exam. It is a prerequisite for the doctoral sequence in functional analysis and other doctoral-level courses in analysis and applied mathematics. You should have a good background in advanced calculus (Math 451 at least) before taking this class. The first semester is largely devoted to developing Lebesgue measure. Math 651, Real Variables II, is offered in the spring.
