Key Features

New to the 4th edition:
* Abundant illustrations, examples, exercises, and solutions.
* The latest results on soap bubble clusters,
including a new chapter on "Double Bubbles in
Spheres, Gauss Space, and Tori."
* A new chapter on "Manifolds with Density and
Perelman's Proof of the Poincaré Conjecture."
* Contributions by undergraduates.


Geometric measure theory provides the framework to understand the structure of a crystal, a soap bubble cluster, or a universe. Measure Theory: A Beginner's Guide is essential to any student who wants to learn geometric measure theory, and will appeal to researchers and mathematicians working in the field. Morgan emphasizes geometry over proofs and technicalities providing a fast and efficient insight into many aspects of the subject.


Advanced graduate students and researchers in mathematics.

Quotes and reviews

“The text is simply unique. It doesn't compare to any other because its goals are different. It cannot be used as the only source of information for learning GMT, yet learning this subject without owning a copy of this book would be ridiculous since it gives a fast and efficient insight in many aspects of the theory.”
-Thierry De Pauw, niversite catholique de Louvain, Belgium

“The book is unique in its format and exposition. Without it, it would be difficult to get in touch with the subject. It paves the way to more advanced books. All other books on the market about this subject are rather technical and difficult to read for an inexperienced student.”
-Stefan Wenger, Courant Institute of Math, New York University
