Real analysis is a standard prerequisite for a course on Lebesgue’s theories of measure, integration, and derivative. The goal of this chapter is to bring readers with different backgrounds in real analysis to a common starting point. In no way the material here is a substitute for a systematic course in real analysis. Our intention is to fill the gaps between what some readers may have learned before and what is required to fully understand the material presented in the consequent chapters.
