Prerequisites: Linear algebra I, Analysis I,II.

It is a master course, however, all bachelor students who have already „Analysis I and II“ are welcome to join.

This course will start with some basic knowledge of real analysis, including measure and integration. Then we will go into some advanced topics in analysis, such as L^p spaces, symmetric decreasing rearrangement of functions and Riesz's rearrangement inequality, the Hardy-Littlewood-Sobolev inequality, the Fourier transform, distributions, Sobolev inequalities and the isoperimetric inequality.
