  Amazon.com: Measure Theory (Graduate Texts in Mathematics): Books: Paul R. Halmos   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
This book is an overview of measure theory that is somewhat dated in terms of the presentation, but could still be read profitably by someone interested in studying the subject with greater generality than more modern texts.
Indeed, the author does an excellent job in presenting measure theory in its entire generality semi-rings, rings, hereditary rings, algebras, sigma algebras and their extensions are all considered in detail, as well as measures on these set systems: finitely additive, sigma additive, inner measures, outer measures, sigma-finite measures, the completion of measures, regular measures).
My impression of measure theory has gone from seeing it as abstract mathematical machinery for simplifying analysis proofs, to a kind of mathematical philosophy that unifies the infinite with the discrete, and lays the proper foundations for inference, probabilistic reasoning, and learning; i.e.

  Measure Theory
Measure theory is a branch of mathematics dealing with the attribution of measure to subsets of a given set.
In economics, measure theory is useful in analyzing the influence that individuals or groups have on market operations.
It also underpins probability theory and the measure of the frequency of phenomena.

  Measure
Measure informs analysis and is one of the key building blocks of the modern theory of analysis and probability.
One of the major drawbacks of the theory of integration taught to secondary pupils and college first-years in beginning calculus courses is its inability to handle sets that are not the countable unions and countable intersections of intervals.
Measure Property 2: The value of μ under any finite or countably infinite disjoint union of subsets of X that are also elements of M is equal to the finite or countably infinite sum respectively of the value of μ under each of the subsets.

In higher dimensions, the situation is worse because, as Banach and Tarski showed, it is possible to derive analogous paradoxes involving only a finite number of subsets.

Minimization of functionals defined on classes of surfaces, depending on the area and the curvature of the surface.
Methods of geometric measure theory, as Caccioppoli sets, BV functions, rectifiable currents and varifolds are used.
The study of Gamma-convergence for these functionals, in a Geometric Measure Theoretical setting, is expecially appealing because in the asymptotic limit solutions are known to develop singularities, whose properties we attempt to characterize.

It is common in analysis to construct measures as solutions to equations, and one would like to be able to deduce something about the structure of these measures (for example, that they are rectifiable).
The theory of varifolds was initiated by F.J. Almgren and extensively developed by W.K. Allard [a1] (see also [a2] for a nice survey) as an alternative notion of surface which did not require an orientation.
Given the success of the theory in Euclidean spaces, it is natural to ask whether a similar theory holds in more general spaces [a8].

 myArmoury.com: Measure Theory
Intended as a straightforward introduction to measure theory, this textbook emphasizes those topics relevant and necessary to the study of analysis and probability theory.
Measure Theory provides the reader with tools needed for study in several areas of current interest, in particular harmonic analysis and probability theory, and is a valuable reference tool.
Though it makes no mention of probability theory, which was my underlying motivation for learning measure theory in the first place, I found it clearer than other more probability-oriented treatments of measure theory.

Abstract measure and integration theory is a far-reaching and beautiful piece of mathematics that should be part of the general mathematical culture any graduate student in mathematics or statistics is exposed to.
We will emphasize throughout the lectures examples steaming from probability theory, every student in measure theory should be acquainted with the fundamental concepts and functions specific to this part.
The dictionary that allows us to move from measure theory to probability theory will be laid out so as to help travelers in either direction to feel comfortable (eg: random variable in probabilistic jargon corresponds to measurable function in measure theory).

 Geometric Measure Theory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The aim of geometric measure theory is the study of geometric properties of sets and measures (mainly in Euclidean spaces) by measure theoretical means.
Such a set or measure may be given as the result of a random procedure, as an abstract solution of some optimization problem or as a result of an image reconstruction algorithm.
The question of geometric measure theory is to study its regularities or irregularities.

 Measure Theory and Filtering - Cambridge University Press
As conditional expectation is the key concept, the correct setting for filtering theory is that of a probability space.
The book then provides an excellent users’ guide to filtering: basic theory is followed by a thorough treatment of Kalman filtering, including recent results which extend the Kalman filter to provide parameter estimates.
These ideas are then applied to problems arising in finance, genetics and population modelling in three separate chapters, making this a comprehensive resource for both practitioners and researchers.

In Mathematics, more precisely in measure theory, an atom is a measurable set which has positive measure and contains no "smaller" set of positive measure.
A measure which has no atoms is called a non-atomic.

 set theory intro   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Set theory as a discipline of mathematical logic is deeply connected with other branches of mathematics, and such connections are what I mean by applications.
That is why modern set theory is deeply hinged on the study of large cardinals, in addition to the study of ZFC.
Another important topic in set theory are determinacy axioms and inner models, both of which are closely related to the study of large cardinals.

 Measure Theory.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
It is of note that the measure used to perform this integration has to be positive, or the convex hull of f's values isn't guaranteed to contain the integral.
Comparing the measure d, induced by invertible e, with the measure, h, induced by some parallel invertible, ({(n:R)}:j:V) with inverse (V:i:{n:R}), we will find that d(U) and h(U) are proportional to one another, in the same ratio to one another as the determinants of e and j.
The study of the standard (Lebesgue) measure on (e) then reveals that its measures of (e:U) and (j:U) are proportional to one another, with ratio equal to the determinant of e o i.

 Ergodic theory of one-dimensional dynamics
This paper summarizes the main results of the probabilistic theory of one-dimensional dynamics and shows the behavior to be surprisingly rich and a good starting point for the general theory of dynamics.
The whole interval is the attractor, and the Lebesgue measure is the physical measure on the attractor.
In this context, a physical measure for a system is exactly the measure which is fixed for this operator and attracts all reasonable distributions, like the Lebesgue measure.

 Amazon.ca: Probability and Measure, 3rd Edition: Books: Patrick Billingsley   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Retaining the unique approach of the previous editions, this text interweaves material on probability and measure, so that probability problems generate an interest in measure theory and measure theory is then developed and applied to probability.
Probability and Measure provides thorough coverage of probability, measure, integration, random variables and expected values, convergence of distributions, derivatives and conditional probability, and stochastic processes.
It is not necessary, but a basic background in measure theory would be very helpful.

 IRCON - Company Overview
The instrument is often called a ratio thermometer because the temperature is measured by calculating the ratio between the two detector signals.
This can be eliminated by using a sight tube, or possibly measuring the target at the exit of the oven.
As the instrument is placed further from the target the spot size resolved by the instrument becomes bigger therefore the target has to be large enough for the instrument to view it.
