Economics | Advanced Undergraduate Seminar in Economics

The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to the
mathematical methods used in economics. The course will be divided
into two parts. The first part will discuss applications to micro and
macroeconomic theory, using tools from single and multivariate
calculus, matrix algebra, and classical linear and nonlinear
programming. In the second part, we shall consider applications
related to mathematical statistics, such as portfolio choice, models
of decision making under uncertainty or some problems in
econometrics. Several practical problems will be discussed in detail
and will be the source for the development of the theoretical part of
the course.
