Mathematical Methods for Economics

Mathematical economics is a key building block of modern economic teaching. This course (together with the pre-course or "bootcamp") aims to provide students with the introductory concepts of mathematical economics, including calculations regarding linear and quadratic functions; geometric and arithmetic series; calculus in economic problem solving; partial derivatives in solving economic problems; optimisation problems with or without constraints; matrix algebra; dynamics and difference equations; and exponential and continuous growth in problem solving.

Course instructors: Marisa von Fintel and Hylton Hollander
