Abstract

This tutorial is an informal introduction to measure theory for people who are interested in reading papers that use measure theory. The tutorial assumes one has had at least a year of college-level calculus, some graduate level exposure to random processes, and familiarity with terms like ``closed'' and ``open.'' The focus is on the terms and ideas relevant to applied probability and information theory. There are no proofs and no exercises.
