Instruction in the mathematical background required to appreciate and understand the use of mathematics in economic analysis, including multivariable calculus, integral calculus, and linear algebra. Emphasis on techniques for solving systems of equations, unconstrained and constrained optimization, comparative static analysis, difference equations, and analysis of dynamic models and their application to a range of economic problems.
As a result of completing this course, students will: 1. Become familiar with a broad range of mathematical concepts and techniques used in graduate-level economics courses and in economic research. 2. Develop a basic understanding of how to model economic phenomena in mathematical terms, and how to analyze these mathematical models. 3. Develop sufficient familiarity with the use of mathematics in economics to read most current journal articles in economics without stumbling over the mathematics.
