My latest screencast is a lecture from G14FUN Functional Analysis where I prove the Baire Category Theorem for complete metric spaces: a countable intersection of dense, open subsets of a complete metric space must be dense.

The screencast is available from

This screencast includes a picture-in-picture (PIP) of me in the bottom right hand corner along with the audio and the screen-capture movie from my tablet laptop. I am quite pleased with the way the PIP has come out this time. The webcam recorded this footage at 320×240 resolution, and I scaled it down slightly for the final production in Camtasia.

The audio quality is also improved from some recent screencasts: for some reason I had the microphone sensitivity setting in Camtasia set too high, and this was producing hiss and distortion.

Thanks for the lecture. You explain Baire’s category theorem clearly and it was enjoyable to listen. I wish all my math professors explain math theorems and proofs in that way like you do; recalling the key lemmas and definitions is very important.
